Guadalupe Mountains National Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Tent camping in the high desert is always a special experience. Add in the tallest mountain in Texas at 8,749 feet and surrounding sheer cliffs reaching 8,085 feet, and you have one of the premier tent camping locales in the state. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is a relatively new park that opened in 1972.

It has 86,000 acres of wild terrain that invite discovery on foot or horseback. Like all deserts, the landscape appears harsh and almost lifeless when viewed at high speed from an air-conditioned box, but taking the time to embrace the incredible mix of plant life and animals who thrive on the clear, clean, and surprisingly cool mountain air will bring ample rewards to those willing to slow down and stay awhile."
