In southwest Texas, far from cities and people, lies one of the most pristine rivers in Texas.

Clear spring-fed water tumbles past rugged ridges, scenic canyons and brushy banks. It’s not easy to get there, but it’s worth the effort to experience this unique combination of snorkel-worthy pools and swift rapids set in a desert environment. Part of the Rio Grande drainage basin, Devils River is the best Texas has to offer.
