Desert Floor View from Smith Spring Trail

Head up the Smith Spring Trail in Guadalupe Mountains National Park from the Frijole Ranch Trailhead, and you soon see desert vistas like this.  Next, you'll head into a section with boulders and then you'll hit the shaded part of the trail, where the spring is located.  Year round, there's water, though sometimes in the winter you'll also see a little bit of ice.  It is a quiet place where wildlife likes to gather, too.

Here's a link to a slideshow of images from this trail! And here's a link to our regional hiking page!
