Great Baldy Exploratory

The hike is about 7 miles long, 3500 elevation gain, takes about 6-8 hours. Strenuous, a typical Organ Mountains hike.

The hike starts at Soledad Canyon, Bar Canyon day use area parking lot. Walk towards the waterfall; ascend the ridge on the left before reach the waterfall; traverse east along the north side of the canyon where the stream supplies water for the waterfall; climb up the scree area; turn left on the ridge and summit Great Baldy.

Steep climbing, loose scree, a far cry from a beginner hike. The organizer has read or heard other hikers' description of this hike, he has yet to do it himself. That naturally adds a lot of uncertainty to the hike. Experienced hikers only. Experienced hikers with adventurous spirit, that is.

Meet us 0730 at Milagro Coffee, or 0800 at Soledad Canyon day use area parking lot.

    Hi All. I will hike to Baldy on October, 1st. I may bring some folks from Albuquerque as well. Does anyone have gps tracks for this hike? They would help me tremendously. Thanks in advance.

    All ten of us made it to the top of Baldy Peak after four hours of climbing. What a view from the top. A very neat adventurous hike.
