We were in Carlsbad caverns and decided to check this out since it's only 30 mins away. Facility seems a little run down, very few visitors. There is a campground and many miles of hiking trails which is probably the best way to see this park. Very short road into visitors center and back out. Probably a great place to visit in the cooler months if you enjoy backpacking, just wasn't for our group!

While GMNP is not the most spectacular national park, it is well worth your time if you are anywhere nearby. There are interesting historical sites and many hiking trails from which to choose. We did Devil's Hall, which was quite rewarding. It is definitely worth combining with Carlsbad Caverns. It is a hiker's park, not one to visit if all you want to do is just drive through and see spectacular views.

By national park standards, this doesn't get a ton of visitors. And that's to your advantage! The drive in between smaller peaks is lovely as you rise in elevation. The staff and volunteers are friendly and helpful.

Guadalupe Peak is a wonderful way to spend a day, climbing up to the top of Texas and signing the book. El Capitan is a stunning sight from all angles. And there's the Bowl and McKittrick Canyon if the peak isn't your speed.

This was a quick but delightful stop. We got here after the visitors center was closed so I did not experience the entire experience however the views and educational exhibits speak for themselves.
