Another of Texas' amazing national parks. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is just south of the New Mexico Border. Most venture here to climb Texas' highest summit, Guadalupe Peak at 8,751'. We chose to do another hike that starts at the same parking lot as the hike to Guadalupe Peak, Devil's Hall.
Hike to Devil's Hall
This hike is short at 4 miles round trip, but the hike is difficult in the sense that you can lose the trail here and there and there is some rock scrambling. At times it's marked well and then at times you see many different trails leading from the main. Our advice is to keep hiking forward until you reach the dry riverbed and the sign pointing to Devil's Hall. You may think you need to detour before, but don't.
The hike starts with beautiful views of the mountain.
After a few miles, you reach the dry river bed and the rock scrambling.
Eventually you will reach this unique spot. We couldn't figure out what it was, but it was sure neat!
Then just around the corner is Devil's Hall.
