The high wall, needle-like spires of the Organ Mountains curve dramatically around a semicircle of Chihuahuan Desert habitat at the Aguirre Spring Campground. The campground, nestled at the base of spectacular cliffs, overlooks the Tularosa Basin and White Sands National Monument. Alligator juniper, gray oak, mountain mahogany and sotol are a few of the abundant plant species here. Seasonal springs and streams occur in the canyon bottoms, with a few perennial springs that support riparian habitats. From April to October, the entrance gate is open from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. From October until April, it is open from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Beautiful little short hike beginning on a gentle slope of tall grass and wildflowers that starts to wind through a gradually ascending rocky footpath. I didn't summit Baylor Peak but climbed a rocky prominence beneath it. Gorgeous place to watch the sun set. One word of advice--watch for rattlers..Lots of big snakes especially if hiking near dusk.

I went with a group of 8 people and it took us about three hours as we stopped a lot to take pictures. Everyone enjoyed this pretty loop trail. We saw a lot of wild flowers and there was a small creek
