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. Las time we tried this one we almost got rained out. I've done it since and it's a nice little hike for a short Sunday hike.
