North Baldy Trail #8 Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Magdalena Mountains are beautiful, but little traveled. I highly recommend spending some time in these mountains. The Magdalena Mountains are a fairly small range in area, but with a top elevation of 10,783 feet, they are the third-highest range in southern New Mexico.

The mountains rise abruptly from the surrounding grassy plains. Numerous old mines, most long abandoned, lie scattered throughout the mountains. The old ghost town of Kelly, on the north side of the range, boomed and died intermittently until the last few mines closed in the 1950s."
