Santa Fe Baldy/Redondo Peak-Difficult

Redondo Peak, according to rumors, is the least visited peak in the Pecos Wilderness and is about 2 miles north of Santa Fe Baldy. I plan to hike up Santa Fe Baldy and follow the north ridge of the mountain to Redondo Peak. This off-trail hike, from Santa Fe Baldy to Redondo, is best suited for experienced hikers who are fit enough to hike at a moderate pace at high altitudes. This is most likely going to be an out and back hike but there is a possibility that we could swing down to Lake Katherine to cool off. The hike is probably in the 18-20 mile range with more than 4,000 feet of gain. As always, make sure to bring wind and rain protection, enough food to fuel your body, and plenty of water or a way to treat it. Dogs are okay but you must bring a leash in case you or your dog bothers the group. A poor weather forecast will cancel this hike; check the site Friday evening for updates.

    Didn't make it to Redondo due to time and a rather slow pace, but still made it up to Baldy. Enjoyed the cool weather, scenery, and physical challenge even though the hike kicked my butt.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
