The route up may take around 8 hours. Guadalupe Peak and the Guadalupe Mountains are known as one of the windiest places in the United States, so don't forget some warm clothes. Be wary of the rattlesnakes too. Summers are too hot, thus the best time is winter, spring, or fall. The route is hard and exhausting, but when you stand on the top, you will understand it is well worth it.
