It’s really nice trail there several offshoots that go off it is well. The last leg was very difficult for me as there was a lot of soft sand and soul crushing hills of the pipeline Road that I had to push my bike up

10/10 would recommend. The trail offered lots of views from the canyons, the waterfall and the mountains (if you are willing to go off trail and climb some boulders). We were there on an early Sunday morning and basically had the whole place to ourselves. Late afternoon we headed back and the trails started to get more packed and the parking lot was full. The trail is a very loose rock/gravel so make sure you have a good supportive shoe. We saw a couple of mule deer and really enjoyed our time there.

Really fun trail ! A lot of poop on the trail, so watch your step lol.

Great hike

A short hike packed with pretty sights.

I Have only hiked a section of this trail a couple of times there are very good views of the mountains and the surrounding area. Many wildflowers and cacti can be seen during the growing season.

Very nice hike to the top of the mountain. Nice cacti along the way and beautiful views from the top.

This probably one of my favorite hiking areas in the Organ Mountains. Beautiful scenery and the trail is not very difficult. Have hiked here at different seasons.

This was a great trail for my husband and I who are in our 60's. Not too much steep terrain but definitely a little altitude climb. The views are great but one thing I noticed is that people don't pick up after their dogs! We probably passed by 20 dog poops ON the trail. We even passed one couple who's dog had just pooped on the trail, and they left it there. We offered them a dog poop bag and they thanked us... but once we passed... they didn't even pick it up! PEOPLE - if you don't pick up... at least push the poop off the trail!!!!

awesome trail, alot of potential for bouldering, climbing, lead climbing.......nice 3 mile trail. ....will definitely do this one again !

Really gorgeous place for a hike

Great hike in November 2017. Would definitely be concerned about the heat if doing this in the summer. Little shade. Water for dogs (and us) was important. Lots of rolling hills, very rocky trail. Good views. Took 11 year old and we made it 6 miles round trip. Very enjoyable hike.

perfect place to go hiking with your family, beautiful views

So impressed with these views! we went to the right at the first fork and hiked the long way round to the waterfall. you could basically walk straight to it, but you'll miss some of the best views if you do! The waterfall was low for our visit, but the area where it is was gorgeous and shady. perfect spot for a post hike snack/ picnic!

nice good inclined trail, went all the way to the end of the right fork and saw the plane wreckage. ...trial got lost a couple of times .....just follow the rocks in the stream downhill......good workout, over six miles in 3 and a half hours, 2000 ft elevation

Wear pants or high socks, you will be scraped up if you don't!

The "real trail" is tough to find. Go through the Fillmore Trail gate with all the barbed wire. Continue to check your location as a reference to how far you are from the trail. It is a NARROW, small trail (probably how it earned its name). Stay alert the whole time, it's easy to lose track of where this trail goes. You will be climbing rocks occasionally and going through tight terrain (like under low trees, etc)

It took us 3.5 hours at a moderate pace to go out and back, with a 15-minute break at the "finish." Just remember to keep checking your GPS on AllTrails app to ensure you're still on the trail and didn't veer off to a more remote trail.

It's already an obscure trail, essentially a series of mini paths that lead through a Canyon.

Fun hike with a great view. Last bit before peak is a little rough. Watch for cacti! :(

Nice views. Beautiful area surrounding waterfall.
