Tejas Trail to Lost Peak Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Upper Dog Canyon area in northern Guadalupe Mountains National Park is remote, quiet, and rarely visited when compared to the park’s front country to the south.
Two long- distance trails— Tejas and Bush Mountain trails— begin at the Dog Canyon Trailhead and run south along the spine of the mountains. One of the best hikes in the northern sector follows Tejas Trail for 3.1 miles to the summit of 7,830-foot Lost Peak, an unranked mountain that offers dramatic views of canyons, cliffs, and peaks.
The Tejas Trail, the main north- to- south path through the national park, runs 11.9 miles from the Dog Canyon Trailhead near the New Mexico border to the Pine Springs Trailhead by the visitor center and campground off US 62/ 180 below the range’s southern escarpment."
