4 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Fairly flat and easy to hike section of the trail. Trail goes through grass lands and has good views of the Organ Mountains Range.

Start your hike from the Sierra Vista parking lot. Proceeded NE toward Bishops Cap. At first, the trail goes through some small arroyos and is a little rocky. After about half a mile, the trail is rather flat and goes through some sandy and grassy areas. Enjoy good views of the mountains!
