  • What a spectacular park! Visitors center parking lot gets very full. Lots of good hikes for all levels. If I lived closer I would come here for hiking and camping all the time.  more »
  • Two great hikes, the McKittrick trail was crowded but beautiful with the leaves turning. This was a fairly easy hike, we went only to "the grotto" so it was 3.4miles each way and not much...  more »

  • Took the trail to Devil's Hall. Let me say. I'm not an avid hiker (out of shape), but gave this a go. They're not kidding about taking a gallon of water, you'll need it! All their trails are well marked and start out easy to find. Devil's Hall was quite the challenge for a novice like me but well worth it. Staff are really helpful too.
  • I LOVE this place. As a National Park, I don't believe it gets as much love as it should. This place is isolated, pristine and unpopulated. At Guadalupe, you'll find an abundance of solitude, quiet and scenic beauty. I saw a couple of deer and a large herd of desert bighorn. The trails in the park are well maintained and easy to follow. The campground is first come basis but there's plenty of sites. I personally loved the staff. Super friendly and you get the sense they too, love the place.
