"The Pinery" Guadalupe Mountains National Park Things to Do Tip by sswagner
Guadalupe Mountains National Park Things to Do: 66 reviews and 116 photos
Guadalupe Mountains National Park has some history to go along with that beauty. This area was once a stagecoach station on the Butterfield Route, which ran from St. Louis to San Francisco. Here, a rest stop would be made, and horses would be changed. It was called the Pinery due to the trees nearby. The remains of the station are very accessible as a parking lot is adjacent. A fairly short hike can also be made from the main visitor center. The scenery is also nice with the mountains looming above.
Directions: Just off the main highway. It would be north of the exit for the visitor center and Pine Springs Campground.
