High Chisos Backpacking ClosureDue to extreme fire danger in the park, the Superintendent has ordered a temporary closure of all High Chisos backpacking campsites, including the Blue Creek and Lower Juniper Zones.Day hiking is still allowed, but smoking is banned on all trails.For further information please call 423-477-1107.
Not sure what the point of just closing the campsites and not the entire Chisos trail system. A fire can just as easily be started by a day hiker as by a overnight camper.
Or Big Bend Ranch State Park; there is fabulous stuff there. Call Barrett Durst, the great park manager, and he will hook you up!
