Join hiking legend, Carol Brown, on a relatively easy 3-4 miles loop hike in the Organ Mountains. You will enjoy scenic views of the mountains, view Chimney Rock, a waterfall and the ruins of an historic homestead. This is a good hike for beginners as well as more experienced hikers. The elevation gain is minimal. Bring 2-3 liters of water, snacks and sturdy hiking shoes. Dogs are welcome if they have been trained and are socialized.
Driving directions to the trailhead: Take I-10 west towards Las Cruces. Take University exit 1. Turn right at the light onto University which eventually becomes Dripping Springs Road. Go 4.8-miles and turn right onto Soledad Canyon Road. Watch to your right for a brown sign that says “Talavera”. Turn right there. Soledad Canyon Road turns left. When the pavement ends, continue straight ahead to the parking area. (MAP)
