Beautiful hike up the side of the Organ Mountains. Great views of the mountains and many beautiful wildflowers in the summer.

Park at the small parking area of Baylor Peak rd. Start climbig up the mountain on a old jeep road. The trail becomes steeper the further up you go. Very good views of the Organ Mountains and the Mesilla Valley. Lots of wildflowers along the way in the summer and also cacti in bloom. Did not make it all the way to the end of the trail, too hard for me.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
