Good choice on the state park ranch. While driving into the head quarters make the stops at the pictographs. Some real amazing ones. Also head out toward the left hand shut up in the solitariro. This is an amazing GEO structure, ring of mountains, a collapsed volcano. You can over night there at the solitaro bar, a piece of private property in the park where the owner has a camp area that welcomes people to stay. I have land out the north side of the park and this is one of my favorite places to hike into to park and stay at.

Like other said make sure your jack is in good working condition and is a high lift type. Jack board a must. Leave at least a gallon of water in the truck at all times! Never know when you have to walk out. Broke cv joints and flat tires are not unheard of and can change the beauty into the brutal reality of the desert.

For such stories, read above mentioned death in big bend to get a sense of how quickly things can go south on ya.

Enjoy. It is a magical place.
