The Maverick Road is not only the best family ride in the Park, it also has some of the most spectacular scenery and cultural exhibits that are often missed by visitors. You can vehicle support this ride, or send a shuttle around the Ross Maxwell Scenic Loop (which you should drive back on). Santa Elena Canyon awaits you at the end of the road, you can cool yourself in Terlingua Creek's entrance, or take a brief hike into the canyon.

Access Info

No Back Country Permit required. If you need to set up a shuttle for this ride, call Desert Sports.


The desert is an unforgiving mistress. Make sure you have water.
