Hike the Devil's Hall Trail

    Very scenic trail in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Great canyon and spectacular views and a great place to see Texas Madrone trees.

    Start your hike from the campground area. There are several trailheads there. Hike for about a mile through some forested and cacti covered area with great views of the river valley and the Permian reef. 

    After the first mile the trail descents into a wash and you can follow the wash doing some boulder hoping until I reached the end of the trail with the rock staircase and slot canyon. The rock formations are spectacular and the view of the surrounding mountains as well. The boulders in the wash are slick but not too difficult to climb. One of the best hikes at the Guadalupe National Park.
