Not only are the mountains that hug you tall and majestic, the views across the pass and across the Tularosa Basis were spectacular. While the sites may seem close together I never heard anyone, just the birds. If you go at the right time in May the sotol are blooming all over the higher road elevations as you leave. There are hiking trails but I was only there for 1 night so didn't have time to do them. Sites are first come first serve so on weekends and holidays it does fill up.

Easy access from US 70, paved road to and around the 55 campsites, great views and trails up the mountain. Unless you are well adapted to high temperature low humidity strenuous hiking, visit between October and March. If you primarily want built campsites in a lovely high desert setting, most anytime will be OK. Read the details at the official BLM website for Aguirre Springs.

We hiked this 4.5 mile loop trail and it was beautiful. It took us about 4 hours but the signage at the beginning of the trail states a 2 1/2 hour loop which is misleading to some people thinking it is easy. It was more strenuous than easy/moderate as it is suggested. Despite that, the trail provided great views of the Organ Mountains. Recommend food and water to bring and good hiking shoes.

Hiked on February 2nd - beautiful day for hiking. Great trail. Very well marked. Easy enough for all skill levels. If camping is your thing, nice campground near the trail head. Surrounded by mountains during the hike. The Organ Mountains are beautiful! Check with the park on gate hours and plan your hike accordingly. Small fee. Vault toilets near trail head.

Great loop trail that takes you winding up and around the back side of the mountains. Great views and different angles. The trails are not marked well but the path for the most part are easy to follow.. We encountered some wildlife on our way out, a pretty stout mule deer and a coyote. Paths are dog friendly (please pick up after your pets!) Make sure you have plenty of water for you and your pets. We saw people were saying it was only a 2.5 hour hike. Not sure how they were making that time unless they were running. It’s about 4 miles so expect about 3hours or more depending on how often you want to stop for water breaks and pictures.
