Overview

Texas is well known for its dry desert landscapes in the west, thick forests in the east, and rolling hill country in the center. But did you know that it is also home to a mountain that stands more than 8750-feet in height? The Guadalupe Peak Trail, located in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, winds its way to the top of that mountain, adding more than 3000 feet of vertical gain – spread out over 8.4 miles – along the way. At the top, hikers discover a view as big as Texas itself, with dramatic vistas to be seen in all directions. It is a strenuous hike, but a surprisingly good one too, with some great payoffs along the way.
