Ron Coleman Trail Round Trip

We will start at the south end of Ron Coleman Trail McKelligan Canyon, and hike to the other end of the trail at Smuggler's Gap (on Transmountain Road), and then turn around, trace the same trail back to the car.
The hike is about 4 miles one way, 8 miles round trip.
The hike is on trail, but very difficult. There's some exposed climbing. Even with the assistance of chains, the climbing poses quite some psychological challenge to some. Be sure you can do it.
The hike will take somewhere between 6 to 9 hours.
Meet us at McKelligan Canyon at the very end at 8:00am; for carpooling from Las Cruces, meet at Milagro Coffee at 7:00am.

    Turned around halfway. Had an even lengthier 'lunch break' than the two previous days. The sun makes you drowsy after food.

    Hi Yubao. Is it the exposed climbing that makes it very difficult?

      Yes. I believe you won't have a problem at all, if you want to come. My phone is[masked]
