The Unrivaled Canyon Hike In Texas Everyone Should Take At Least Once

There are so many things to do in Texas – restaurants, festivals, cute small towns – and of course, nature that’s unmatched by anything else. Big Bend automatically comes to mind when we think about the mountains in our state, but there’s one place in particular that rises far above it (literally). Guadalupe Peak trail in Guadalupe Mountains National Park takes you through ascending canyons, steep cliffs, and raging waterfalls before reaching a summit of over 8,000 feet, making it the highest point in the entire state. If you want to feel on top of the world, this is the hike for you.
