Valles Canyon

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.

      No, there are some rough spots but the entire route is paved.

    Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying a beautiful windy and cold weekend, brrrr!
    I would like to see if any of you could give me directions to this hiking site. I'm not from Las Cruces so I'm not very familiar with the area. I'll be driving from El Paso. Thank you in advance.

      It's an hour drive out there, so getting back by 1:30 pm is really pushing it.
