  • A very enjoyable easy day hike just east of Las Cruces. Highlight is the box canyon and (occasional) waterfall at the end of the trail. Free parking - no fee, but it can get a bit crowded weekends.

  • This was a beautiful hiking area with multiple trails. We enjoyed spectacular views from the base of the Organ Mountains. It has free admission and no restrooms. Make sure you take a restroom break before you get there.
  • Beautiful trail a little over 3 miles to a small waterfall at the end. Very rocky trails but not difficult
  • Very pleasant surprise waterfall at the end of the trail! And we were able to climb up to the side of the waterfall.
  • It's a nice, easy hike. Go after a decent rain to see the waterfall.
  • Easy hike with well maintained trails. Recommend bringing a water source and going in the morning.
