The Guadalupe Mountains, located in the Chihuahuan Desert, are the highest in the Lone Star State. Guadalupe Peak is 2,667 m above sea level and 910 m above the arid floor of the Chihuahuan Desert. The path to the top of the peak leads through a very rocky trail.
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.
