Sunspot area Rim Trail

I've chosen a couple of sections of Trail 105 around the Sunspot Solar Observatory that equals about 6.5 miles with less than 500' change in elevation. This part of the Rim Trail has great views and old growth forest and the observatory is worth a visit. It's about a two hour drive time for Las Cruces and maybe another 20 minutes from El Paso. For Las Cruces hikers we'll meet at the K-Mart on N. Main and leave from there at 8:30 and meet the El Paso hikers in Cloudcroft.

    Tough hike due to the deep snow but a lot of fun with a great group of people.

    I loved the hike and my feet slowly got warm. I wasn't expecting that much snow.

    Ok this is a great trail but we hardly got a chance to see it for all the snow. Despite the snow it was a good hike and as always a good group of people.
