Need to Know

This trail is mostly used to make loop hikes with the Upper Rattlesnake Canyon, North Slaughter Canyon Trail or Yucca Canyon Trail T225 trails. There are no reliable water sources along its length so be sure to pack plenty of water.

Description

The Guadalupe Ridge Trail is a long trail that starts from Walnut Canyon Desert Drive and runs along the northern edge of the park before exiting the western side of the park onto USFS land. The trail used to be a 4-wheel drive road, and the former road climbs from Walnut Canyon Desert Drive to the park's west boundary. For most of it's length the trail is rolling with some small climbs and descents. There are some great views into canyons to the north and south.
