Geologists come from all over the world to see the Permian Reef that formed the Guadalupe mountain range, but you don’t have to know anything about rocks to love this place. The park offers almost 90 miles of hiking trails in three ecosystems. Managed as a Wilderness Area, you’ll be in the backcountry the minute you start out on the trails.
Short hikes with little change in elevation are possible as is a chance to bag a big peak. Guadalupe Peak is the highest point in Texas at 8,751 feet above sea level. The park is famous as a destination to see fall colors, but it’s beautiful all year ‘round.
We also offer special events at Guadalupe Mountains National Park such as photography hikes. See our events page for upcoming dates.
