Narrow Canyon in Robledo's Exploratory

One time I was supposed to do the Seven Waterfalls hike with the Ocotillo Hikers, and somehow I ended up in a different canyon. I walked a bit into the canyon, and did not get to explore the whole of it.

This Sunday, we are going to explore it. If you are adventurous enough, come and explore this canyon with us.

It is a narrow canyon. About 150' wide? Expect about 2 miles in, and 2 miles back. Elevation gain is approximately 1000'? Expect some minor scrambling on loose ground, off trail. It will take about four hours to do the hike.

There is a short stretch of dirt road to access the entrance of the canyon, but any vehicle should be able to drive through.


DISTANCE 4~5 miles

ELEVATION GAIN ~1000'

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

DURATION: Finish by late morning/early afternoon.

PET FRIENDLY? yes

SKILL LEVEL intermediate.

TERRAIN  - loose ground, off trail, possible minor scrambling.

WEATHER check back later, because I cannot trust the weatherman. (He's saying it's going to be cloudy, with the high 50 degrees.

    Hello dear friends))) I would like to join you)))
    I just came to Las Cruces from Ukraine and don't understand exactly how do you organize this hiking. we have come to this place (Hwy 70 & Telshor Blvd
    Take I-25, Exit 6 Las Cruces, NM) and then we are going by bus. Is it correct?
