I have driven through Las Cruces and number of times and had no idea this was here. I hiked the La Cueva Trail Loop. Super well-maintained and pretty easy. 3 miles around and easy to get to. I saw a few deer and lots of birds. I was there in early September and the temperatures weren’t too bad. Be sure to bring water though. It took me about an hour, but I kept a pretty brisk pace. With Covid still creating some disruptions, the visitor’s center was closed as were the restrooms, but they had portable toilets on site with handwashing stations.

There were some nice rocks and views. It was worth a stop but enjoyed other areas more. The trail has gravel that adds to fatigue when walking up the hill.

A very easy and moderate one-bottle of water hike (really a walk) that is perfect for 1st time visitors to Las Cruces. Very scenic with lots of wildlife, but do wear sneakers (not open toed shoes) as the path is gravel. FYI; You need to be able to walk 2 miles at 5,000 feet, but they do have some shaded benches along the way. Dogs are NOT allowed on the Dripping Springs trail. Personal Note; I take all my first time visitors on this walk and everybody loves it.

Loved walking the numerous trails. You can discover the remnants of a resort - hard to believe that a large resort was situated so far out. Beautiful views of the mountains. We really enjoyed our exploration of the area.

Take Dripping Springs Road out from Las Cruces to go to various trailheads and to the Organ Peak Mountains site.
