Soledad & Bar Canyon evening hike

This Palm Sunday, take a relaxing evening hike through Soledad and Bar Canyon.

Starting at the Soledad Canyon Trailhead, we'll make a clockwise loop passing by the Rock House, taking a quick detour to the Bar Canyon waterfall, and then finish the clockwise loop back to the cars. We should finish at/slightly after sunset, and we'll be walking during golden hour, during when Soledad Canyon looks prettiest. (bring your cameras!). There's also an early-rising waxing moon.

If you've been complaining that we get up too early for hikes, or that we drive to far, or what have you—finally, a hike for you! We'll meet at 4 pm in town and within 15–20 min we'll be at the trail head.

DISTANCE is ~3–4 mi round-trip

ELEVATION GAIN is ~1000 ft gained.

FEES: None. Of course, if you carpool, please compensate your driver for gas!

DURATION: Finish by sunset

PET FRIENDLY? Yes. Bring a muzzle (you shouldn't need be told to bring a proper leash), and if you'd like to unleash, ask others before you do so.

SKILL LEVEL is reasonably beginner friendly, The elevation is noticeably higher than Las Cruces, and if you are out of shape you will feel it.

TERRAIN well-maintained trail, gravel & dirt.



MEET for carpool at:
