Old Guano Road Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Old Guano Road Trail descends 710 feet in 3.7 miles from the Natural Entrance of Carlsbad Caverns to a trailhead on the west side of a private campground in Whites City. The easy trail, following an historic roadway, is best hiked from the west trailhead by the visitor center since it gently descends a broad ridge to the east trailhead.

The difficulty in hiking it one- way is that you need to get back to your vehicle at the visitor center. It’s best to arrange a shuttle pick- up at Whites City with one of your party. Alternatively, do it as an out- and- back hike by following the trail until you feel like turning around and returning to the visitor center."
