The plan is to hike over Baylor Pass in the Organ Mountains, starting from the west (Las Cruces) side to the east (Aguirre Springs) side. It will be a one-way hike, with a car shuttle arranged. Total walking distance is a little under six miles. I found a brief description online here:
I'd like us to start walking by 9 am. Because of the car shuttle, we will meet at 8 am at the Kmart parking lot on Telshor Blvd (just off I-70 by the Telshor Theatres). Anybody interested in assisting with the car shuttle please call me (915)[masked]. If you're late, please meet at the trailhead at 9 am. Directions:
Trailhead: From the junction of I-10 and I-25, go north on I-25 6 miles to US-70. Turn right (east) on US-70. Follow US-70 east for 10.1 miles, exit at Baylor Canyon Road. Turn right (south) on Baylor Canyon road. Follow Baylor Canyon road south for about 2 miles to the trailhead on the left.
Recommended that you bring two quarts of water, and some snacks, sunglasses, sunscreen lotion.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
