The River Road is a scenic drive near, though not in, Big Bend National Park. There’s not much but the road and the views. And a few locals who want to drive much faster than you.

Even if you don’t plan on hiking Santa Elena canyon at the end of the road, it’s worth driving Ross Maxwell road in Big Bend National Park for the scenery along the way.
