This trail is shorter than others, and a bit rugged. Parking may be a moderate challenge.. The views are pretty.

Gorgeous day with a nice breeze. I liked this hike because you were quickly out of the Las Cruces range and into the mountain.

Very beautiful easy hike. Great views of the valley below and the surrounding mountains. Lots of wildflowers after the summer rains. This trail has a steady climb but is not strenuous .
