Fun trail for a back by noon hike. Well maintained trail, good views and plenty of nice shady spots to take a break from the sun. Springs and creek were flowing pretty good for a high desert trail.
beautiful hike on a beautiful day. The weather was hitting into the mid-sixties when we we're at the high point of a hike. Beautiful day to sit at the top and boil some water for coffee and tea. Excellent experience.
Really enjoyed this hike. at times it felt like we were in a deep forest, which was awesome. Kids loved all the bouldering opportunities. It took us almost four hours to complete it and would definitely do this hike again. Amazing views.
Wonderful hike yesterday, beautiful scenery, fantastic views. All of 4+ miles, mostly either up or down, over rocks, etc. IMO, not a moderate hike, some parts very difficult, precarious; lots of climbing over large rocks. STRENUOUS a better description, at least for a large part.
Great trail! Very beautiful and lush in December. We hiked in the rain and it was still amazing. Elevation gain was moderate and not too bad. Highly recommended.
Great trail! Very scenic, not too much of a climb.
This is a very scenic trail. Very nice views of the Organ Mountains and the Tularosa Basin. I hiked that trail in the winter and in some places there was snow and Ice
What an amazing trail! Just be sure to bring 5$ cash for the paid parking. The dogs and I loved this trail. Tons of streams, lots of green, even in November! The trail is well shaded, there are a few areas I would consider above a moderate hike, just take your time and I promise you will enjoy it!
Beautiful wild flowers and breathtaking views of the mountains. Lots of variation in scenery and terrain; several streams, lots of interesting rock formations, and tons of blooming flowers forming a riot of color. Our dog loved it too! Favorite hike in the Las Cruces area. Can't recommend it highly enough.
