Great book that is well written. It explains the trail system clearly, which helps for planning my next trip to Big Bend. The only discouraging part of this book is the edition I bought was written in 1995. That's my fault, I should have checked that before ordering. Should still be a viable resource for anyone looking to explore BBNP.
Laurence Parent is a talented and prolific Texas nature photographer whose hiking and camping guides are a staple both on my bookshelf and in my backpack.
In Hiking Big Bend, Parent's keen eye is turned towards one of Texas' largest and most rugged parks, ensuring even the smallest of details, if worthy of note, is shared with readers. A borrowed copy of Hiking Big Bend came with me on a week-long camping trip to the park in October 2001, and upon my return home I purchased my own copy. Though lacking photos, the text serves dual roles as a trail by trail hiking guide and written "memory book", chock full of details about the parks history, geology, wildlife and natural phenomena.
Couple this text with the National Park Service's three-booklet guide to the park's hiking trails, paved roadways and unpaved/offroad trails and you will be set to plan and enjoy your travels in Big Bend National Park.

It clearly stated how far and long each hike would take, how difficult or easy it was, and a good description of the scenery. I was able to plan my days weeks in advance with this information, making my trip much more enjoyable than it would have been had I tried figuring it all out while there. i can't imagine why anyone would want to give this less than five stars. On a personal note, the cactus were in full bloom in late April, and made for amazing photos, and general enjoyment. Do pack lots of water, and drink even when you don't feel thirsty. The dry air is very deceiving if you're not used to it. My throat got so dry and tight, It was hard to talk. Do listen to the warnings about the poorly marked trails, it is very hard to navigate the desert if you aren't experienced. A Garmin GPS watch is helpful, it will at least... Read more
