Organ Peak

Organ Peak is 10 miles and 4,000' RT.  Its tough, steep in spots and there is a ridge line "traverse".  This will be a fast paced hike, as we need to be done by 5. 

The hike leaves from the trailhead, heads up Filmore Canyon, gains a ridge, and ends up on Organ Peak. Not for beginners.  A tough one, and a good follow up to the Needle, as it is slightly easier.

Meet us at Milagro Coffee (1733 University Ave., Las Cruces 88001) at 8:00am or La Cueva Picnic Area at 8:30am.

    It was the nicest winter day so far. No wind almost the whole day, except a few short spurts while we were on the ridge. Started at almost 9:30, and got back by 5:30. And that makes it 8 hours.

    Everyone made the hike, despite an injury. Yesterday had the best long range visibility and calm summit conditions of any of my Organ Mountain hikes. The Guadalupes stood out clearly, and Sierra Blanca was capped in snow sitting over a calm White Sands.
