I didn't make the trip as my tow vehicle (my wife's truck) was totaled 2 days before I was scheduled to leave:giveup:

Did anyone ride Casa Piedra road from 170 to Marfa? If so, how was it? I've read the trip reports but don't think I've seen it mentioned. That's one of the roads I'd planned on riding....


A bunch rode that. It was my first DS ride on a KLR I've only had a few months. The road was freshly graded, a month or so ago. Only a couple sandy spots. Good ride. Pinto Canyon was much better, in terms of ride and view. IMHO

Hi Jeff, How do you access this point? We are making a family (4x4) trip out there soon-ish, plus I'll be on board an expedition (4x4) trip through Big Bend as a photographer/video guy.

Oh yeah, the inspection station is right past the overlook, so don't go past it if you don't have a permit.

Peguis Canyon

You'll see this monument on the left as you approach
the turn out. Can't miss it.

I did the tourist thing on Friday, leading CDC, M38A1, Solorider and Joel (I forget his screename :doh:) around the park hitting the main things you have to see on your first trip. Saturday M38A1 and I wandered out 170 heading west with the some loose goals. The only goal we achieved was having a good time and getting some good photos. I'm feeling a bit lazy, so here is a link to my gallery. I trimed my 100 some odd pictures down to the 26 best, so it's not a lot to look at.
