We stopped in Guadalupe Mountains National Park for a couple of days on our way to Las Cruces, New Mexico. On the second morning, I left Miranda around 10:30 a.m. and began my assent to Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas at 8,751', via the Guadalupe Peak Trail. The trail is well marked and maintained but is definitely a world of up, climbing 3,000' from Pine Springs Campground where we were camped. The round trip out and back is 8.4 miles.
