McKittrick Canyon Hike, Guadalupe Mountains National Park

McKittrick Canyon in Guadalupe Mountains National Park is known for fall color, but it offers great views and a nice adventure anytime of the year.  Part of our Peak Fitness Challenge, and designated as a Texas Mountain Trail Heritage Hike, there are a variety of distances for you to try.  We took the 4.8 round trip option to Pratt Lodge...which offers a great place to rest before heading back.

There are lots of places along the trail to rest in the shade, but
do take cover from the sun.  Here Stonewear Design's
Lynx top is a good choice to protect skin from the sun's rays.
