Eight hikers met at the Silver Peak trailhead and decided to do the Silver Peak Trail. Hiking in the bright sunshine for the first couple of miles was nice and the clean air afforded great views of distant mountain ranges. Two hikers turned around after a mile and a half but we managed to get a group picture before they did.

We continued on around the north side of the mountain, finding cooler conditions in the mountain’s shadow. We had an early lunch at “the tree,” which is about two thirds of the way up. One hiker turned around there. Two other hikers turned back at the start of “the switchbacks” and the rest climbed the steep section to the summit, having ascended about 3000 ft. In 4.5 miles. After taking in the spectacular views, the group returned to the cars by mid-afternoon.

Next week, December 12, we will hike in Owl Canyon, in the Peloncillos. Meet at the Rodeo Post Office parking lot at 9:00 AM.
