Guadalupe Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide
"At 8749 feet in elevation, Guadalupe Peak marks the highest point in the state. Views from the top are stellar, particularly on a clear, windswept day. The peak also illustrates a remarkable geology, one that began eons ago, and its evidence can be seen all along the trail. The peak’s genesis began with an enormous inland body of water known as the Delaware Sea that once covered parts of Texas and New Mexico, stretching nearly 150 miles north to south and 75 miles wide, an expanse of more than 10,000 square miles."
--E. Dan Klepper, 100 Classic Hikes in Texas (The Mountaineers Books).
Don’t underestimate this day hike. Very rewarding climb to the top. Spotty AT&T cell phone service until reaching the peak.
