This ride is one of the most dirt vs concrete out there. Maybe 20 miles of concrete to and from trailheads. Fun concrete, through the tunnel, the winding road to Boquillas, just little bits. The vast majority is dirt, and by dirt I mean the typical BB double track jeep roads.

PM sent. My ride is kinda like a Chili's App Sampler Platter, but not sure how the trailering to RGV jives with what you run.

In my humble opinion the trailering is what makes this ride awesome. You get to soak at the hot springs in the late afternoon until the sun sets, ride 5 miles of concrete to RGV, and then drive back to Terlingua without freezing your bootie off. If warm, not big deal, the 1 hour ride back is relaxing and the sunlight lingers an hour after sunset.

At some point I may just start and end this ride at the hot springs and bring a couple 5 gallon cans for pit stops.

My bucket list dos y dos goal is to do the dos e dos on a ridiculous bike, maybe my CL90 with cafe bars n stuff. But this would just be a short layover on my round the world minibike adventure.

Looks like I'm heading out from Austin on the 22nd a.m. also.
In all likelihood on my GSA.
Let me know what your plan is and I may tag up with y'all.

If I were you I'd take the opportunity to ride by yourself down Old Maverick to Santa Elena and hike back there. Pack a lunch and go chill.

I'll be arriving in Terlingua late on Wednesday, so I'm looking for a Big Bend ride on Thursday. thanks for the offer, though. I'll probably just do maverick and the River Road solo.

I'm in if you don't mind having a 1090 crash the small bike party. Looks like a great way to see some of the best parts of the park.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

Howdy Friends,

I'm going to do this 'Round the Bend a little different. Friday will be a Ride 'n Hike - I've wanted to see Mariscal Canyon for too long! Trailhead is at the 'Talley' campground, about 6 miles south of River Road, then about 7 miles round-trip of hiking, with a 1700 foot ascent. I'll be getting kinda a late start, due to starting my morning in Alpine, so my whole plan is something like this:


Leave Study Butte: 9:30am
Arrive trailhead: 11:30am
Finish hike: 3pm
At hot springs: 4:30pm
At Starlight: 7pm

or something like that...

This means carrying in a LOT of water (plan on 95ー temps, hiking at noon with no shade), lunch, and hiking shoes / shorts / etc.

Anyone interested in joining: PM me, or just meet at the Study Butte gas station by Big Bend Resorts ~ 9:20am.
