Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Guadalupe Mountains National Park is the largest wilderness area in Texas with nearly 47,000 acres. The mountains were formed from an ancient marine fossil reef, formed around 260-270 million years ago. The summit of Guadalupe peak is 8,749-foot tall, the highest in Texas. The Park is located in west Texas on US 62/180 road. I visited this Park on a beautiful sunny day in the middle of May, and the weather was around 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

McKittrick Canyon Trail

I hiked 6.8 miles into the McKittrick Canyon, which took me around 4 hours. I visited Pratt Cabin, The Grotto and the Hunting Line Shack. The trail was easy but loose stones in most of the trail make the walk a little challenging. You can see spectacular views all the way through McKittrick Canyon, full of prickly pear cacti, willows, Texas madrones, Texas walnuts, alligator junipers, and ponderosa pines.

McKittrick Canyon Trail

I was able to see a few small trout in the clear waters of the fragile stream and a lot of birds along the way. While resting in the Pratt Cabin area, I saw two wild boars chasing one mule dear. They stopped close to me and I could get some great pictures of them. I really enjoyed the wilderness in the Guadalupe Mountains.
