Very cool place! The Van Patten mtn camp and Boyd Sanatorium. Must see!

Pretty cool! Nice views. Restroom near the top was clean. We plan to go back in the spring.

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

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

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.

Nice views. Gravel trail.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!
