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.

It was a lot of fun- gotta pay attention to stay on the trail at a few spots though- there were a few places where there are little side trails that veer off to view points and with all of the rocks there are a couple of spots where it's tough to tell what's actually the main trail.

We brought a ton of water per the advice of others on here and still went through almost all of it.

Great incline!! Super beautiful and fun :)
