Organ Peak


Very roughly, the hike is about 10 miles, 4000' elevation gain. Very hard hike. The view on the Peak is exceptional.

Our recent trip up there found that the first part of the trail was heavily overgrown, with stretches that the grass was chest high. Since generally speaking, grass does not pose that much a barrier, we just waded through. And this time, the trail is already blazed out. The second part of the trail was surprisingly clear (in Organ Peak Trail terms). Still, long pants are strongly recommended, and relatively high boots if applicable.

And also, make sure you got good knees, strong legs, and no kidding, a brave heart. Those are what it takes to do this hike.

Bring at least 5 liters of drinking water.

Let's do the Peak!

Meet us 0730 at Milagro Coffee, or 0800 at La Cueva picnic area parking lot of Dripping Springs State Park.

    Hi Yubao, I would have liked to join you, but I will still be in AZ that Sunday. Keep me posted though for any other hikes like that one though.

      Hi Hugo, no worries, you will definitely have future chances to climb the Organ Peak with me.

    Yubao, I would like to do Rabbit Ear Plateau Sunday the 15th, if you are interested. Not so early though, a 900 meeting. If no one else signs on for your hike, join me and we can change this to REP.

      At least one other person is interested in doing the Peak with me this Sunday. We will wait and see how it turns out. Two weeks ago I just did Rabbit Ear Plateau, but like some of the other Organ hikes, it never gets old on me. If we could not do Rabbit Ear Plateau this Sunday, I will be glad to do it with you on another time of your choice.
