This trail slices through the heart of the Guadalupe Mountains and exposes many of its famous jewels to hikers lucky enough to take the trip. It includes views of Guadalupe Peak, a great walk in the woods through the relict high-altitude forest, vistas from the summit of Hunter Peak and McKittrick Canyon's famed viewpoint called "The Notch," and the historic lodges and the natural wonders of McKittrick Canyon. If you have three days to see the Guadalupe Mountains, you couldn't spend the time much better.
