Guadalupe Peak

The views from Guadalupe Peak are some of the best in Texas. This highest point in Texas stands at 8,751' and is just under a 10 mile hike from the start of the trailhead. The hike itself is relatively easy, taking you up ~ 3,000 vertical feet. However, no scrambling is required... just a lot of water!
