The secluded and abundantly forested Dog Canyon lies on the farthest northern end of Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Travel time to the canyon is considerable, but the last few miles are perhaps the most beautiful in the state. The simple paved highway carries hikers between Manzanita Ridge and Guadalupe Ridge before winding down in a breathtaking descent into Upper Dog Canyon. The sloping ridges are nothing short of stunning, and the view just before the descent remains one of the few in Texas that has changed very little in the last 100 years.

This is a great starting point if you want to go throughout the National Park. takes 2.5 days to hike from Pine Springs to McKintrick Canyon. you start in the desert and work your way up into the mountains where you see some of the most beautiful scenery in Texas. On the other side you enter a dorset of pine trees and a whole new scenery. day 2 you great some breathtaking views of mountains and canyons. from mile 1.5-3 is a tough climb covering 2,000 ft. This is a must do trail, toughest part is having to carry all your water. 2 gallons for 2.5 days.
