“A steep and rocky singletrack off the Guadalupe Mountain Road with rewarding views.
— Wil Parker
Closed when muddy. Access to the Río Grande del Norte National Monument is $3/day per vehicle.
This trail climbs to the south peak of the Guadalupe Mountain. The trail is short, and you can park at the west trailhead for the Las Vistas de Questa Trail
or drive up the Guadalupe Mountain Road
. The turn-off for the trail is marked with a brown sign 5.6 miles from the first cattle guard on NM Highway 378.
Toward the top, use the Lookout Spur
trails for better vantage points of the surrounding views.
