Soledad Canyon for beginners

Soledad Canyon is in the western foothills of the Organ mountains which offers an easy and scenic hike very close to home. Steve will lead this hike, to the waterfall and back.

Bring water, snack, sunscreen, hat, hiking boots are recommended. 8am at Milagro  Cafe for carpooling. If you carpool, please remember to compensate your driver for fuel.

DISTANCE is ~3–4 mi round-trip

ELEVATION GAIN is negligible.

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

DURATION: Finish by late morning/early afternoon.

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 beginner friendly.

TERRAIN is maintained trail.
