Bush Mountain Trail to Marcus Overlook Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Bush Mountain Trail to Marcus Overlook is a fine half- day hike on the northern edge of Guadalupe Mountains National Park. The moderate route follows a shallow canyon and then climbs onto high rounded ridges that offer great views across the crest of the mountains and north to New Mexico.

The out-and-back hike is best done in the cooler months rather than summer since little shade is found along the trail. The singletrack trail is easy to follow but rocky in places. A strong westerly wind often blows on the upper part of the trail, especially in the winter and spring months."
