Soledad Canyon

Starting at the Soledad Canyon Trailhead, we'll make a clockwise loop passing by the Rock House, taking a quick detour to the Bar Canyon waterfall, and then finish the clockwise loop back to the cars. We should finish around noon.

If you've been complaining that we get up too early for hikes, or that we drive too far, or what have you— this is a hike for you! We'll meet at 9:00 am in town and within 15–20 min we'll be at the trail head.

DISTANCE is ~3–4 mi round-trip

ELEVATION GAIN is ~1000 ft gained.

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

DURATION: ~ 3 hours?

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 reasonably beginner friendly.

TERRAIN well-maintained trail, gravel & dirt.

WEATHER is SPRING!

AFTERWARDS is TBA.

MEET for carpool at:

Las Cruces: 9:00 am, in/outside Milagro Coffee at Pan Am Plaza. See map (

    Probably not going to make it, so don't wait for us. If we do come, we'll just meet at the Soledad Canyon parking area. My back is hurting today, not sure I can make the loop.
