My husband and I did this with our 2.5 year old daughter and we enjoyed it!

Awesome! A wonderful trial with a ton of history. It was nicely maintained.

This is a very scenic trail. Very nice views of the Organ Mountains and the Tularosa Basin. I hiked that trail in the winter and in some places there was snow and Ice

It was a beautiful trail. although it was quite hot, It was still pretty. The water fall is gorgeous.

Great hike and kid friendly...don't forget to bring $5 for parking...

What an amazing trail! Just be sure to bring 5$ cash for the paid parking. The dogs and I loved this trail. Tons of streams, lots of green, even in November! The trail is well shaded, there are a few areas I would consider above a moderate hike, just take your time and I promise you will enjoy it!

This is my favorite trail in the Las Cruces area yet! Will definitely return!

Fairly easy trail to a small waterfall, many wildflowers along the way.

Another one of my favorites in the OMDP NM , Have hiked the trails many times.

One of my favorite places to hike. Beautiful canyon, great views and nice little waterfall. Have hiked that canyon several times.

One of the gems of the Organ Mountains, near Las Cruces NM, is the Organ Peak, one of the steep and expose rock crowning this range. To get there, you need to go the Dripping Springs area and with a help of a map, find the Filmore Canyon entrance. Once inside the canyon, you have the option of going straight ahead and you will get to a small water fall that is only active during the rainy season. If not, in about half a mile, you will find a trail to your right that will take you to the end of the canyon. The trail is some how marked but once in a while you need to go back into your steeps to correct your direction. Specially now. Because of the rain, there is a lot of grass covering the mountain. Once you get to a place where you can not find the trail any more, you need to identify where the Organ Peak is and from now on, the walk is out of any defined path. Please review your capabilities and if you decide that you are fit to get to the top, go ahead, the effort is worthwhile. If not, be proud of what you accomplish and enjoy your trip back on this beautiful trail.

easy for kids to hike. my boys had an amazing time.

This gets 3 stars for the time of year we did the hike (90 degree summer weather). In the fall or winter this would be 4 stars. There is no shade on the hike up to the waterfall, and while it's rated as "easy," with the heat and the steady upward climb I'd say it's approaching moderate. It ends at a beautiful "grotto" with a nice water fall and plenty of shade. Beautiful view on the way down. It's nowhere near as beautiful as the nearby Pine Trail Loop, but definitely worth doing.

Keep going past the sanitarium! Awesome hike!

Amazed I haven't heard more about this spot! Perfect hike!

Beautiful wild flowers and breathtaking views of the mountains. Lots of variation in scenery and terrain; several streams, lots of interesting rock formations, and tons of blooming flowers forming a riot of color. Our dog loved it too! Favorite hike in the Las Cruces area. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Good one, really easy bring your water is desertic, my 6 yo finished the loop.
