Guadalupe Mountains National Park

The highest point in Texas is in the Guadalupe Mountains (Guadalupe Peak, 8749 feet) and Guadalupe Mountains National Park contains some of the most beautiful scenery in the state of Texas.

People have lived in these mountains, caves, and alcoves for 10,000 years and in addition to the scenery, Guadalupe National Park displays historical buildings and artifacts steeped in local culture.

Hike through McKittrick Canyon to the Grotto, passing old Pratt Cabin along the way, stop along the Butterfield Overland Mail Route to see the ruins of Old Pinery Station where stage coaches passed daily 100 years ago, or pack a bag and make the full day trek to the top of Guadalupe Peak.
