National Park Week: Guadalupe Mountains

  • Apr 24, 2011 · 6:00 AM

Hike in the Guadalupe Mountains. Would like to do Guadalupe Peak, or another more sheltered trail depending on the weather.

Meet at:

  • Las Cruces: 6 am east of NMSU's Pan Am Center
  • El Paso: 7 am Lowes at Mountana and Loop 375 (far eastside)

    Just a FYI, we ended up doing Guadalupe Peak. GPS track: http://www.gpsies.com/map.do?fileId=irudofvbeypnhoyj I took some 10 GiB of photos, (very) slowly going through them?

    And to think I thought of canceling. Very windy day, yet still completely worth it. Great hike for National Park Week.

    Changed date to Sunday? a few expressed Sunday would work better for them (probably myself as well). Will add carpool details/etc this evening.

    We could meet at Pine Springs at a certain time and decide then where we're going depending on who is there. McKittrick Canyon's pretty easy, and it's trailhead isn't too far. Although I've been to Devil's Hall many times, I wouldn't mind going again, I didn't go any farther past the supposed end of the trail and I would like to see more.

    Well the bowl is a nice hike and like Gareth said the trails are very well marked. You cant miss the trail junctions. I wouldn't mind leading it but my wife has plans Saturday so I'd have to take the kids and that hike would be way to much for them.

    We did Devil's Hall last Nov (McKittrick Canyon was over-crowded, and they wouldn't let us in).

    With the winds supposed to be picking up these next few days the bowl or maybe Devils Hall might be the better options. I loaned out my trail map so don't know the distance that would be covered if you take Tejas up and Bear Canyon down but Devils hall is 4.2 miles round trip.

    The trails are very well defined in the park. If you're starting at Pine Springs, the two obvious choices are the peak hike or the Bowl hike. Both are reasonably difficult but passable by anyone with two healthy legs. Only disadvantages to Guadalupe Peak is that it can get crowded and you walk back by the same path. 3000-feet elevation gain for the peak, 2500-feet elevation gain for the Bowl.
