Big Bend Nation Park

I'm planning a trip to Big Bend in a few weeks and wanted to see if anyone here has been there and done that. I'm taking a very lightly modded JK Rubicon and my friend is taking a stock Raptor.

Any recommended trails?

What is the difficulty level?

Any other tips or advice?

I have never been to BBNP but i have heard that there are alot of rules and regulations the main roads is paved No camp fires i heard BBNP is better for hiking.
But i also heard that there is one good spot called Black Gap. But in a few weeks me and some friends are go to big bend ranch state park is more laid back you can drink beer and have a gun. I have been twice and its alot of fun i hope this helps out

Yeah, I certainly have heard that Big Bend is fairly strict as far as the trails go. We're more going for the scenery and just to check the park out, rather than hoping for a hardcore off-road trip. From what I've seen, I don't think there will be any challenges.

my brother went on a trip to big bend in 2009 with his completely stock tj. he took it (he told me) to nearly every trail including the black gap road and was fine. he said it was an absolute blast to be out there camping and trail riding. y'all will be completely fine driving a rubi and raptor. youtube has a video of a nissan titan doing some of it...if he can, y'all DEFINITELY can.


this one just cracked me up, can you drive any faster?!

Thanks for the insight and videos! I didn't think there would be much that would be difficult, but some advice from others never hurts!
