Entrance fee is $5. This is a desert park - no tree shades etc. Plus the trail the climb up the mountain is laid mostly with rocks...so wear study hiking shoes (mine has a steel reinforced base plate). I prefer to drive 40 miles to Las Cruses to hike in Organs Mountain (BLM land). It is more pretty there.
