The Starbucks entrance is near the intersection of Hickory and Valley


Depart for Hatch by 11:45

From Las Cruces, we’ll take a scenic back road up to Hatch. (about 45 minutes to an hour) The back road is narrow, has dips, and sometimes farm equipment. There’s also a Border Patrol Check Point in the middle of nowhere so we urge everyone to watch your speed and watch for road hazards.


When we arrive in Hatch, there should be plenty of parking in the lot in front of and around the side of Sparky’s. It’s a pretty popular destination on Sunday’s, so everyone’s patience will be appreciated!
