Guadalupe Mountains

The Lost Peak Trail is a moderate hiking trail in Guadalupe Mountains National Park near El Paso, Texas. This trail is kid friendly and begins at the Dog Canyon Trailhead. The park says "follow the Tejas Trail through open meadow and into the canyon bottom that is lined on either side by alligator juniper, ponderosa pine, chinkapin oak, and bigtooth maple. Shortly ahead you will begin climbing up toward Lost Peak, gaining 1540 feet in elevation. At the summit the trail levels out and soon reaches a junction with the McKittrick Ridge Trail. The distance to Lost Peak and return is 6.4 miles. It is rated moderate to strenuous, and takes 5-6 hours." As with all trails in the Guadalupe Mountains, make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen. There are two developed front country campgrounds in Guadalupe Mountains National Park, the Pine Springs Campground and the Dog Canyon Campground.
