Big Bend NP Publishes New High Chisos Backcountry Campsite Booklet

According to the Desert USA NewsBlog,
Big Bend NP Publishes New High Chisos Backcountry Campsite Booklet
December 13th, 2007 · No Comments

Descriptions, photographs and maps of the the 42 developed campsites in the High Chisos Mountains area. This is an invaluable trip planning tool for those hikers new to Big Bend.

The booklet contains beautiful photos of scenery along the hikes so that you can decide what you would like to see, and plan your trip.

There really are no problem animals—only
problem people. With your help, wildlife and
humans can live safely together in Big Bend.


Great Job Ranger Eric.   :eusa_clap: :eusa_dance:
Revised and additional text, photographs, illustrations and layout

I believe EP1 was removed as a campsite when they rerouted the trail.
