Butterfield Stagecoach - Pinery Trail Ruins
Just a few parts of walls are left of the rest area. Nice informative signs detailing the types of vegetation though.

For detailed description - look at the NPS website for Guadalupe Mtns NP.

This trail is paved and wheelchair accessible - very simple to walk.  This is a nice trail to walk and pick up some information about the vegetation and history of the area.  there are some ruins of the Butterfield Stagecoach rest area at the end of the trail.

Not much to see of the ruins but the walk is very enjoyable!
