Duration: 6 Hours
Location: Swim Center

The Tech Gym is organizing monthly hikes for students in an effort to improve student well-being. This is a great opportunity to visit new areas in the Socorro area, create a new healthy habit, and meet new people! The fifth hike of the fall semester will be the Chupadera Peak in the Bosque del Apache NWR. This trail is about 10 miles round-trip, climbs about 1,700 feet and will take five to six hours. The trail begins near Highway 1 and goes west, under I-25 and up to the peak, where you’ll be treated to a 360-degree view of the Rio Grande Valley. Meet at the Swim Center at 9 a.m. Be prepared! Bring water, snacks, and other essentials. Inexperienced hikers should read helpful hints athttps://www.nmt.edu/images/stories/Gym/HW_newsletter.pdf.  All are welcome.  For more information and to sign up, stop by the gym and talk to Melissa Begay.
