Baylor Pass

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:
http://www.localhikes... 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) 6675806. 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. - Robert

    I like the Baylor Pass hike and enjoyed meeting new folks who also like to hike and it was great to see other hiker friends again. Wish the wind hadn't tried to blow us away but it was great to be outdoors hiking.

    Althought it rained early in the morning, by nine am it was clearing and was a good day to hike. It was windy in spots but a great hike.

    I was surprised to see so many come given the forecast for heavy rain. It didn't rain and we had a great hike. The Organ Mountains were green with beautiful Christmas Trees. I think I will place my gifts for friends under a tree there and organize a hike up there to open presents.
