This is definitely one of the most spectacular hikes in the Guadalupe Mountains. Unfortunately, it requires some special effort to arrange a shuttle to Williams Ranch. When you get out on the trail, however, you'll consider the extra hassle worth it compared to the effort involved in making this an 18.8-mile, out-and-back hike from Pine Springs.
