HUNTER PEAK. Hunter Peak, also known as Pine Spring Peak, is two miles northwest of Pine Springs in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park in northwestern Culberson County (at 31°55' N, 104°50' W). Its summit, at an elevation of 8,368 feet above sea level, rises 2,700 feet above Pine Springs. Hunter Peak was named after rancher J. C. Hunter, who owned much of the land now included in the park.
