2019 Fall Color Season Information - Finished for the Year

The fall colors season in Guadalupe Mountains National Park typically begins in mid-October and continues through mid-November. However, several environmental factors may affect the timing and intensity of the color change and season length - temperature, sunlight, and soil moisture.

To accommodate as many fall color visitors, please consider carpooling when possible; parking is first-come, first-serve and limited in McKittrick Canyon, Pine Springs, and Frijole Ranch. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is a U.S. Fee Area - collected fees or America the Beautiful passes are required for entrance to the national park.
