The first section of this hike is the best. I wouldn't bother going to the end unless you actually have to see the water. the rest of it is really only good for rock hunting because there isn't anywhere to sit and relax at the water unless you get in it.

Tough, yet phenomenal hike. Definitely recommend some kind of GPS to make sure you stay on track. As others have said the trail is very over grown with shrub and other ruthless succulents. Wear some kind of lightweight hiking pants or else your legs will get beat up pretty good. Bring plenty of water. Also as others have said if you are trying to get on the trail that takes you to the peak and you find yourself at the waterfall on the Fillmore canyon trail you need to turn around. If you blink you will miss the entrance to the organ peak trail. All Trails map was great in keeping me on track. As your walking on the organ peak trail it is not marked by anything other then piles of rocks. If you find yourself off track coming down you can follow the stream down. The stream will take you to the Fillmore canyon waterfall. Good luck and enjoy the breathtaking views from the top.

I did this loop trail in the middle of September in a day with nice weather. The trail is a little difficult but if you like the adventure and nature, you will enjoy a lot. On the way up to reach the Pine Tree Loop Trail stop and seat on a big rock, then enjoy the views of this beautiful landscape, the canyon, the Organ Mountains, the rocks, everything is amazing!

Well marked, light traffic. No shaded areas, so be sure to go earlier or later in the day.

Some of these pictures are actually of the pino trail. This trail isn't as green since it's still in the foothills. Still a great hike but don't expect very much shade

nice caves, a bunch of bats in the big one, alot of climbing and bouldering routes, bathrooms on site

Fantastic trek! Lots of great activities and it gets rugged the last two days. Just beautiful.

This hike provides decent scenery at times of the year when you can't see as much in the mountains. The actual canyon in not very long, but you can lengthen the hike by going to the river. It's also fairly close to town and not as heavily used as trails in the mountains. However, there is no maintained trail, and that can make it a little more difficult at times. Watch out for flash flooding in the summer.

Nice little short hike but straight up, nice payoff with a good view. If you have 30 min this is a nice one for a quick workout.

Not a bad hike, don't see how it's rated moderate. This trail is very easy. The last seven miles of road are horribly washboards. Start filming for a movie 7-18-17 so check availability before you go.
