Valles Canyon

  • Feb 20, 2011 · 9:00 AM

Valles Canyon is North West of Las Cruces and only about 12 miles from the airport. According to Greg Magee "this is a moderate 5.5 mile hike with little elevation gain." Valles Canyon is a tributary to Broad Canyon and where the two intersect is the turnaround point. This is a nice little hike for a short Sunday hike. Hopefully the weather will corporate.


Meet at:

  • Las Cruces: K-Mart parking lot on North Main and US 70, near Shell. See map (Google Maps).

    Description of the hike was accurate. It was well organized and inclusive of all. Many thanks to Tom and Samat for performing their sweep duties so nicely. What a beautiful canyon - what interesting people!

    Samat, Thanks for the more detailed instructions to the K-Mart. The meetup time is 9:00. I forgot to edit the text for the meetup but got it right on the calendar.

    I've added a map and more clear directions for the meeting point. The physical address really isn't useful; but it's K-Mart, 1900 Bataan Memorial E, Las Cruces, NM[masked]

    I think I might do this one. If the weather is decent. But is the meetup at 8 or 9 am? You have both listed.
