Hike the Baylor Pass West Trail

6.3 Miles Round Trip - 1548 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

4819 Baylor Canyon Road - Search Nearby - Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

This trail lets you access the Baylor Pass and Aguirre Springs from the West Side and gives you good views of the Organ Mountains.

Start your hike from the parking lot of Baylor Pass Road. The trail starts to climb gently first and then gradually the climb gets steeper, but nothing too difficult. There is nice desert vegetation along the trail and very good views of the Organ Mountains and valley below.
