Hike Buckle Bar Canyon

3 Miles Total - 500 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Beautiful canyon with colorful rock formations and good views.

Hiked the canyon after having crossed the Rio Grande in the winter, very little water in the river. I climbed several mountains with very good views of the mountains around us. Many great cacti can be seen here. Hiked about 3 miles round trip. Best hiked in the winter or spring.
