Just bought some new long johns and I want to try them out. Pine Tree Trail is on the other side of the mountain in Agguire Springs park. The Park is off highway 70 going east. There is a $3 charge to park there. We can car pool.
This is a 4.5 mile hike up and down the mountain. It may be wet so please wear hiking boots. This is not a hike for beginners. It is a moderate to difficult hike.
You will need to dress in layers for your feet as well as your entire body. Bring gloves and a hat to keep the heat in.
My guess is that we will be finish by 2:00 pm. For those that want to, we can eat lunch (and get some hot coco) in Las Cruces.
We will take several breaks for those of you that are slow but experienced hikers.
Where do you want to eat lunch at?
