The Baylor Pass National Recreation Trail is a long but beautiful trail that starts near the Aguirre Springs Rd (32.371774, -106.56164), then crosses the Baylor Pass and finishes at the Baylor Canyon Rd. The trail is well maintained, not steep and easy to walk. In the whole journey you can admire very beautiful landscapes and or course the views of the majestic Organ Mountains and some unforgettable rock formations. The vegetation, a mixture of pines, trees, scrubs and desert flowers will enchant you.

This is the second time I have done this beautiful trail and again I loved hiking and admiring the mountains and rocks of this wonderful place. The trail is long but it is worth it, I enjoyed a lot.
