Hiking Carlsbad Caverns & Guadalupe Mountains National Parks

Probably the least popular of all GMNP trails. I was there over the Memorial Day weekend and there was a wildfire fire, that was caused by lightening, that caused all trails to be closed except for this one. I would only recommend this trail for the most avid hikers.
Terrifically designed trail. I had the good fortune of doing this in the middle of the summer during a tropical storm onslaught. It was a cool 70 degrees and I was actually overtaken by fog! Great amount of fun. Check out the flagstone bench someone put together overlooking a canyon about 2.5 miles in on the left.
