Guadalupe Mountains National Park Things to Do: 66 reviews and 116 photos
This is another easily accessible area in the Guadalupe Mountains. A road leads to the parking lot for the homestead, which is a museum. The exhibits explain a good deal of the area's history including the Apaches and the Buffalo Soldiers. This is also a good place to get an idea of raching was like in this area. A ranger was available to give information about the area and the exhibits. There was even some livestock in the pens. This might also be a good place for a picnic. A picnic table in the shade was available. Not many people visit compared to the main visitor center, however it is worth the effort. Some trails also lead from here.
Directions: On the main road north of the turnoff for Pine Springs campground. It is north of the Pinery, but to the south of the McKittrick Canyon area.
