Pine Tree Loop

  • Jan 15, 2011 · 9:00 AM

A fairly easy trail only a few minutes from town, Pine Tree Loop climbs some 1000 feet on the east side of the Organ Mountains, rising up from desert shrubbery to desert pine. The route is some 5 miles. Expect to be back by 1 pm, hopefully much sooner. This group hasn't done Pine Tree Loop in a while (6 months?). If you're a beginner/intermediate hiker, this is the hike you've been waiting for — please attend and meet everyone! As usual, if you can't attend, even at the last minute, please update your RSVP so we're not waiting for you. Meet:


  • Las Cruces: 8:30 am at the North Main K-Mart (I-25/US 70), in the northeast corner of the parking lot near Shell.

  • El Paso: 8:00 am at the Transmountain Shell (I-10/Loop 375). Note: your organizer is not meeting here, please self-organize for carpool!

  • Aguirre Springs trail head: 9:00 am at Pine Tree Loop trail head. See map.

Note: there is a $3/vehicle parking fee. More information:
