    John Huffman reviewed McKittrick Canyon Trail

    Opened up our trip in Guadalupe Mtn. National Park by hiking in McKittrick Canyon. It rained lightly throughout our hike, but the sun peeked through as well. The Texas madrone trees were fantastic, in bloom. Other trees were also turning color. I would go late October to mid November to see the changing of the seasons. Groovy hike and not much elevation gain. It was a good hike to get acclimated to the climate and ready to bag Guadalupe Peak the following day. I would recommend taking this hike as part of my overall experience in the Park. Prepared us for adventure hike the next day.

    WOW! Took a group of Scouts and Adult Leaders to the top for a day hike. Definitely one of the all time great hikes. The weather was perfect 60 degrees. It had rained the day before and it was quite crisp and clear.

    The hike itself is quite a challenge. Pace yourself! It took 4-5 hours to reach the summit and about half that to get down. Lots and lots of switchbacks. Some of us were not in good shape (myself), but made it to the pyramid marker at the top. The trail is easy to follow and well maintained. Do some stair stepper exercises and then do some more. Stop along the way to take in the amazing views, Texas madrone trees, Ponderosa Pines and Douglas firs. No water available along the trail; therefore, pack in plenty. We had lunch at the summit and you'll need a windbreaker. A little chilly, but not too bad.

    Revel in your accomplishment when you reach the top, sign the log in the ammo can and when you finish at the bottom. If you can do this hike, then everything else is a breeze. A checkmark on my Bucket List.

    Additionally, hiked in McKittrick Canyon and you do not want to miss that area of Guadalupe Mtns. National Park either.

    McKinney Roughs is a great place to hike. BSATroop 271 completed 10 miles including the Pine Ridge Loop. Great views along the trail. Only downfall to this park is its proximity to Hwy 290.

    Evening Hike - 6:20-9:50pm - quiet solitude, no one on trail, cooler than expected for hot August weather, couple of trees down on trail, 3.5 hr hike for entire loop, last 1.5 made in the dark. South Parking closed for construction, north parking the best. Saw several Pleated (Red-headed) Woodpeckers, rabbits, deer (jumped and scared the C#@} out of me in the dark), owls. Stopped at Toad Pond using Roosevelt Cutoff to make it back to Parking. Glad I did, saw many Houston Toads. Great time for solo adventure!
