Lovers Leap Hike

Lovers Leap is an iconic spot at Philmont. The 2.5-mile hike from Lover’s Turnaround to Lovers Leap has some elevation change, with the base of the canyon at 6,500 feet climbing to the jutting cliff face at 7,372 feet. Join us in visiting this ancient rock and discover the legend that gave it its name! This 5-mile roundtrip is moderate with trail inclines and declines. This hike is family led, more information and maps are available at the PTC office.

Please remember to bring:

  • 2-3 liters of water
  • Snack food
  • Rain gear
  • Extra layers (as new Mexico weather is always likely to surprise us)
  • Sunscreen
