I think I enjoyed hiking up Bear Canyon even more then Guadalupe Peak. With a predawn start I got to the canyon at sunrise and it was alive with bird songs. It is steep but shady with trees and huge boulders you go around as you get higher up - the cool and pleasant surroundings helped make the steep ascent more tolerable. . When you join the Bowl Trail it is pines and firs and easy going - spotted 3 mule deer there.. Great views of Guadalupe Peak from Hunter Peak. The only downside of doing it counterclockwise is you get full sun all the way down on Tejas Trail. All the trails are marked and in good shape with fresh signs of maintenance.

Great trail. I went up via Tejas trail to the peak, and came down via Bear Canyon Trail (Bear Canyon trail is a beast going down, I can't imagine how tough it'd be going up). Great views from the top too.

Hunter Peak is the hidden gem at Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Strenuous hike with magnificent vistas. The view from the summit is beyond beautiful. Highly recommend this trail.
