Mars and Achenbach Canyon in the Organs.

This is a cross-posting of El Paso Hiking Meetup Group's event ( hosted by Carol Brown. If you are a hiker in this area, and you don't know who Carol Brown is, well, that could be a very good reason for you to be on this hike.

We are cross-posting it for the convenience of hikers that want to meet up at Las Cruces. And the meetup place and time in Las Cruces is: Milagro Coffee at 8:15am. If you are meeting the group at Milagro Coffee, and you have questions or any concerns, please contact Yubao Li at[masked]-2969.

If you know where the trail head is, and have been there before, you may choose to meet the group at trail head at 8:45am.

Though the link above will take you to the description of Carol's original posting, I copied the text below:

We will hike up Mars Canyon to the ridge, walk south along the ridge to Ladera Canyon, then over the saddle to Achenbak Canyon and back to the cars.

A six to seven mile hike taking 6-7 hours.

    We meet at Milagro Coffee at 8:15am for carpool. If you choose to met at the trail head, please comment so, thus we won't wait for you at Milagro in vain. If you choose meet us at the Achenbak trailhead at 8:45 am, the driving direction is: take University avenue east, turn right onto Soledad Canyon road (where the brown Talavara sign is), the road curves to the left--stay on the pavement--,go 3 or so miles and turn right onto Ladera road and go 1/2 mile +/- to where the trash bins are, and the jeep road to the left leads up to the trail head. If this road is bad, you can park on Ladera road and walk the 2/10ths mile to the parking trailhead area.
    Any other questions or concerns, or, running late sort of things, please call or text Yubao @[masked]
