The Wild and Scenic River designation extends for 196 miles along the river's course.

Approximately 69 miles of The Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River designation lies within Big Bend National Park, and an additional 118 miles lies downstream of the Park. The National Park Service manages both the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River, and the Rio Grande along Big Bend National Park's boundary for recreation and preservation.
