Gorgeous hikes in the Organ Moutains. Head up tp the old resort and waterfall for starters. You won’t be sorry. This area is the very best that Las Cruces has to offer.

We enjoyed our trek through dripping springs. The rangers were accommodating with our pets. The up and back trail to drippings is very nice and the trails well maintained. There is good signage and explanation of the historic sites.

This place is very serene and has fantastic scenery. It sits at the foothills of the Organ mountains with a running creek and some historical buildings from an era gone by. It's definitely worth a look and it's an inexpensive way to hike in nature...More

Don't know if it's permitted or prohibited. My guess is that as long as the drone is not obtrusive or annoying to other visitors, it should be okay.
