Fodor's Review

Poster-size illustrations in a shaded, outdoor patio area tell the geological story of the Guadalupe Mountains, believed to have been carved from an ancient sea. You can also hear the recorded memoirs of oilman Wallace Pratt, who donated his ranch and surrounding area to the federal government for preservation. Nearby trailheads access a.9-mile nature loop and lengthier hikes.
