This fossilized mountain range was once a 400-mile long horseshoe reef.

Guadalupe Mountains National Park is located in western Texas near the border of New Mexico. This federal land protects the most extensive Permian fossil reef in the world. It also features the four highest peaks in Texas, a diverse collection of flora and fauna, and a history that was shaped through conflict, cooperation and survival. Experience the mountains and canyons, desert and dunes, night skies and spectacular vistas within a place unlike any other within the National Park Service. This is the largest wilderness area in Texas, and it is perfect for avid hikers and backpackers. 

McKittrick Canyon is at the heart of the park and has several hiking trails to choose from, such as McKittrick Canyon Nature Trail, Pratt Cabin, Permian Reef Trail, and the Notch. Please note that pets are prohibited on most of the trails. The rangers strongly recommend leaving your furry friends at home if you plan to come to Guadalupe Mountains National Park. 
 
Other fun outdoor activities to do here include horseback riding, birding, stargazing, and scenic drives. Over 300 bird species have been spotted in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Frijole Ranch often has phoebes, western scrub jays, white-winged doves, lark sparrows, northern mockingbirds, and canyon towhees year-round. Escape to this serene desert with your friends and family.
