Salt Flat, Texas – Beginning January 2022, the Pine Springs Visitor Center at Guadalupe Mountains National Park will be closed 5 days annually. The visitor center will be closed for these specific holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Washington’s Birthday. In previous years, the visitor center has been closed only on Christmas Day.

The park will remain open these holiday dates, but the Pine Springs Visitor Center will be closed on these traditionally low visitation dates. Visitors will still be required to pay entrance fees at self-registration stations located near the trailheads or leave park passes on vehicle dashboards as proof of valid entrance to the park. Williams Ranch Road access will also be unavailable on these days, but the Pine Springs, McKittrick Canyon, Frijole Ranch and Salt Basin Dunes trailheads will remain open for visitor use on these holidays.
