Bush Mountain ist ein 12.5 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Salt Flat, Texas. Er führt vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke nur für erfahrene Abenteurer geeignet. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert, gezeltet und gebackpackt werden. Die Route ist am besten von September bis Mai zugänglich.

Challenging trail with solitude. Views pretty good. I prefer Hunter Peak and Guadalupe Mountain for a hike and views. Very hot in summer with little shade.

Another great trail if you don’t want to have people around, I logged this trail just over 16 miles round trip - 4 more then the description. Trail is all on rock or lose rock but the view is worth it if you go to the cliff’s edge on the back side.

Great long hike. The Tejas Trail is gorgeous and the switchbacks are exposed on the mountainside. Got slightly lost: when you take the Bush Trail, you want to veer towards the Pine-something campground, if you don’t, then you’ll end up somewhere back on the Tejas Trail. You do hike four little peaks before Bush, but the incline is not intense. Great long hike.

This hike is harder than Guadalupe Peak trail and Hunter Peak trail in my opinion. The first portion, on the Tejas trail is awesome. Once you get to the top, you take the left fork which is Bush Mountain trail. At this point, you are only half way to Bush Mountain peak. From this point on, the trail becomes very rocky with lots of loose rocks. At certain points, I got lost because the trail was overgrown with vegetation and it was hard to follow. The hardest part of this section of the trail was mental as you have to crest FOUR mountain tops before reaching Bush Mountain Peak. So four ups and downs and knowing that you have to do it again going back to base camp was a little tough . Still, well worth the effort. Starting out early is highly recommended. It took me 7 hours 15 minutes before I got back to Pine Springs base camp.

Strenuous hike with beautiful views. Steep trail to summit. Start early and combine this hike with Hunter Peak and tag two of the seven 8,000+ foot summits in Texas in one day.

Rough trail, very steep at points. Very beautiful weather when I went in March but it was extremely windy in exposed areas, 70+ mph winds. The pine springs visitor center will generally give you the forecast if you are there before they close at 4:30 mountain time. Beautiful views and if you enjoy back country hiking/camping and having to work to get your reward this is a trail worth doing. No water in the back country or at back country camp grounds so you have to pack your own water and gear.

This was an amazing trail! I loved it! For this hike you'll need to take the Tejas trail to bush mountain. We hiked to bush mountain and camped there for the night. In the morning we took the back trail (blue ridge) back to the Tejas trail. I had a great time

Went out to Bush Mountain camp starting off from Pine Springs. Car camped the first night at PS and then took off in the morning. Amazing views once you get to the switchbacks. Very rocky, yet I did fine with my minimalist trail runners and my 30 lbs pack. I hiked up to the campground and took me 4 hours after stopping to talk to one hiker at the trail junction (Tejas-Bush junction). Camp had plenty of trees which helped with the high winds. Summited Mt Bush, took a few pictures and returned to camp. Returned the next day to Pine Springs to refill my water to summit Guadalupe for my third night but decided against it due to a fall i took on the way down (some parts have loose rocks). Great hike and marvelous mountains! Can't wait to go back!
