We hiked here twice during our month in NM. It had a lot of different plants and the mountains were good for photograph. The trails were in good shape, but more signage would have been nice, because of all the trails.

about a 3 mile hike that you CAN take your best friend with you. Hard to believe that people lived out here long ago.

After the summer monsoon is the best time, as can see not only lots of flowers, but the dripping springs will really be active, and can see many smaller waterfalls in the area, Hiking is not for the weak at heart, but see Hermit's Cave, remains of the turn of the century TB Sanitarium, and great flora and fauna.

This place apparently closes at 5pm now... According to two other cars who got there the same time as me, they used to close at 7pm... their website never mention operating hours.

Relatively unimproved trail seemed like easy walking from the parking lot. Day use only, and free. Would recommend.

Right on the outskirts of Las Cruces in Organ Mountains. A short hike into the canyon, well marked trail a few mile loop. Beautiful views of the mountains and surrounding valley area. Can be hot - wear good shoes and bring water.

I shouldn't recommend this hike. It is relatively undiscovered. But, here is my traitorous review: The trail takes a large loop without much elevation change, so is easy for everyone. The view is marvelous, it is peaceful, and you feel 100 miles from the city because the canyon opens up after you enter a narrow portal. Also, there is a... More
