Guadalupe Mountains trail maps
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a good free trail map covering all of Guadalupe Mountains. However, National Geographic does make a nice Trails Illustrated map of the park, which includes topographic lines and trail mileages. This map is especially great if you’re doing longer hikes up Guadalupe Peak or into the wilderness doing backcountry camping. If you’re just driving through the park, this map isn’t really necessary.
Here’s a Guadalupe Peak trail map (200 kb), showing the trail that climbs to Texas’ highest point. This map includes topographic lines and shows the alternate route where the stock trail diverges from the hiking route.
This shows the Guadalupe Peak trail map overlaid on a photo (250 kb). This really gives you a sense of the elevation gain that must be tackled to reach the summit of the peak! The reward is well worth the effort.
Guadalupe Mountains lodging map
When you’re visiting an isolated park like Guadalupe Mountains, you can’t expect to stay right at the park entrance. To the right is a Hotels.com interactive lodging map of Carlsbad, NM — the closest town the park.

Guadalupe Mountains geologic map
The Guadalupe Mountains geologic map (7.0 mb) includes both surficial deposits as well as bedrock geology, showing areas both inside and outside the park. Note how the rocks change once you leave the park!
