Last Chance Canyon is an unbelievable natural gem that is exceptional, rare and unusual within the Chihuahuan desert. The canyon has sheer limestone cliffs several hundred feet high with impressive overhangs. There are distinctive riparian areas with clear pools, slick-rock, and occasional small waterfalls.

Hike Rating: Moderate

Length: 6 miles

Elevation Gain/Loss: 1,000 feet

We will need to leave the EP/LC area early on Saturday. Once we arrive, a car shuttle will need to be setup between the west and east trail-heads. The start of the hike is just before Sitting Bull Falls and follows trail #226 for the entire outing. We can also briefly visit Sitting Bull Falls prior to the hike.


Meetup to carpool at the east El Paso Lowe's parking lot off of Montana Ave at 6am. We will leave at 6:30. LC hikers please self-organize for your carpooling to EP.
