Welcome to Guadalupe Mountains National Park
Few Texans seem to know about Guadalupe Mountains, but Guadalupe Mountains National Park is a true Texas high spot, literally as well as figuratively. At 8749ft, Guadalupe Peak is the highest point in the state. Just south of New Mexico, 110 miles east of El Paso, this remote desert enclave is a long way from anywhere. For the best day-use, drive 12 miles northeast from Pine Springs Visitor Center to reach McKittrick Canyon, which sees the finest fall foliage in West Texas.
