Weather was great. Hike was great. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

This trail is either really Sandy or rocky. not too steep, mostly flat. It is easy to get off trail tho as some of the markers are knocked down. Theres lots of cows & cow poop.

Short hike but very cool! The "waterfall" wasn't crazy but it was quite beautiful

Nice views. Gravel trail.

This was an ass kicker! It’s an amazing hike to the peak of the Organs, but it is a very physically demanding and in your face hike up and down. It is definitely worth the challenge, but it is not for the weak minded and out of shape.

This was an all day adventure for us. We started early when gates opened and came down as the sun was setting. We took our time and it took us 7-8 hours. Bring plenty of food and water, good hiking boots, and pants. Keep eyes open for cairns to guide way up and down. It’s easy to sway off course. Use of recording on this app helped enormously. Plan for some celebratory beers afterwards. Gonna need them!!!

Took our time hiking the trail, yesterday. That being said, we got started at 8 AM and we were back at the truck just before 6 PM. Lots of great views and some challenging scrambling. It was a Saturday and we saw three other pairs of people hiking the trail.

This is a very beautiful hike. It is not too difficult and the views from the top are superb. Saw a lot of interesting cacti along the way. I really like that area a lot.

Fun easy hike for the whole family that you can connect to other trails and turn it into a longer loop if you desire. Nice wide trail to hike side by side your loved ones with great history signs along route.

I have hiked several sections of this trail during the winter . Fairly easy trail to walk on. Sandy in places but not difficult. Very nice rock formation.

We loved this trail and there are only a few areas that dogs are not allowed. Our golden retriever had a ball on the Fillmore Trail and we just didn’t go on the trails where dogs are prohibited.

It's definitely doable in a day but so much more fun as an overnighter. I went 4 times now, always with a group. Take enough water.

Beautiful Hike! It is definitely in the top two in the Organs. Just as enjoyable as the Needle but not as hard. The scenery is magnificent and the view of Needle is incredible.

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.

Nice and easy trail. Great for beginners. Don't expect the spring to be like a waterfall or anything. Overall great trail!

Very pretty

nice waterfalls
