Baylor Pass west side


We will park at the trailhead at the west side, and climb to the pass, and come back.

The hike is on well maintained trail. Distance is about 6 mi. in and out.

ELEVATION GAIN is ~800 ft to the top of the pass.

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

DURATION: 3–4 hours. Hopefully finish no later than 1 pm.

PET FRIENDLY? Yes. Bring a muzzle (you shouldn't need be told to bring a leash).LL LEVEL is intermediate. No whiners!

TERRAIN starts in the desert (with no shade), climbs to riparian forest (juniper, etc).

WEATHER call your weatherman before getting into your car.

AFTERWARDS we may get lunch.

    I'm bring a co-worker who makes work related trips to Las Cruces like I do, in the hope that he will join the Meetup and experience the positive people and places that will help him grow as a hiker.
