...that I'll ever do. But a fun one nevertheless. I hiked up solo when I was in the area working on the Lonely Planet Texas guide. Texas is an odd place...much of it doesn't appeal to me at all, but a few select places are some of my favorites on earth. This is one.

Nice hike with great views and weather. Met a former major league baseball player on the trail and some other fun people. Went to Carlsbad Caverns in the evening and watched the bats leave the cave. Toured the caverns the next day and then drove on to Wheeler Peak. HP #38

A beautiful hike to the top of Texas! Looking down on the west Texas plains on the top is unforgettable, especially with El Capitan jutting out on the southeast. Big Bend is my favorite spot in TX but I need to get back and explore a little more in the Guadalupes!

Date Climbed: Mar 6, 2009


Drove out from Lubbock. Fun stuff, not particularly steep or challenging, but great views and the wind was low for me. Always good to get a highpoint. The real beast was bushwacking to El Cap...

Highpoint #3 was actually a little harder than I thought it would be, but still a great climb and bragging rights for any Texan.

After getting off from work, drove from Austin to Guadalupe Mtns NP, and slept in the cab of my truck. Got on the trail at 4:30 AM just in time for sunrise at the summit.

Boriss AndeanOne hour up to Texas' highest point!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 24, 2008

Boriss Andean

Drove 55 miles west from Carlsbad. Beautiful morning. I could see Guadalupe's range at my right side and the Texas plains to the left.

Started from the Trailhead (Parking Lot) at 11:00 am. I hiked the well marked trail up to the summit. Lots of hikers for a monday. Got to the summit (2,667 m/8,749 ft) at 12:04 pm.
Took a few shots and headed back to the Jeep.

Amazing views of Guadalupe Mountains and Texas basin from the top.

My 3rd US HP!.

Training up for hard hike in January, so I managed to put in three loops to top in one day (2h 58m; 3h 26m; 3h 16m)... not boring at all; I love that trail. Going back over in December to try for four loops in one day. Went back November 8th just to enjoy the views, very nice.

Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2008


Began before sunrise and the views were more beautiful than I'd imagined from the descriptions! Observed four deer and one rabbit. My 18yob, 14yog, and 11yog, along for the hike. Windy, clear, and the views never ended. Can't wait for the next highpoint and would love to return to Guadalupe for a repeat of the summit, as well as other climbs.

highlandvillagerPerfect weather, great views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2008


We started hiking around 4 pm just as the winds really picked up. After many stops to take pictures, we arrived at camp just after dark. The cool, windy night gave way to a warm, calm, and sunny morning - perfect summit weather. With no clouds in the sky, we had endless views over the desert floor below. The whole hike was very scenic. I'm just glad it wasn't hotter, because I took 5 liters of water and it wasn't enough. HP17

I headed up Guadalupe this past spring with two good friends. We had a great hike, camped out near the summit, and headed for the top to watch the sunrise. All in all a great trip!

I highly recommend reading passages from the Tao Te Ching as the sun sets.
