Off Broadway

 

The Off Broadway Trail is located about 20 miles Northwest of Las Cruces. To get to the trailhead, take I-10 West out of Las Cruces and take the Airport Exit (# 132). Continue traveling west on the frontage road for approximately 4 miles. Turn right onto the paved road with the arched sign above that says "Carralitos Ranch". Follow the main road northbound for about 6.75 miles; then turn left at the intersection. Travel northwest for approximately 11.8 miles, through several "dips" in the paved road. Turn right onto the dirt road, go through the gate (please close the gate after the last person is through), and air down (the dirt road is really rough). Proceed northeast; the trailhead is less then 2 miles away, at Waypoint OB12. Ranging in elevation from approximately 4,700 feet to 4,900 feet, the trail crisscrosses a dry streambed, with a continuous series of large rocks ranging in size from 18 inches to 36 inches in diameter. At Waypoint OB14, the trail follows the canyon to the right; however, there’s also an optional steep climb straight ahead up the side of the hill. The trail is less than 3 miles long and takes about 2 hours to 3 hours or so to complete.

Difficulty Rating:  Three (3) Hard
