Picacho Mountain

Let's revisit Picacho Mountain this Saturday! We set the starting time at 8:30 am to let you have enough of your beauty sleep (including the guys, wink). We will do an easy hike. That is, instead of climbing the mountain, we will loop around the base. A 6 mile easy walk at a comfortable pace.

DISTANCE: ~6 miles.

ELEVATION GAIN:  Negligible.

FEES: None. Of course, if you carpool, please compensate your driver for gas!

DURATION: Around 3 hours? We finish when we finish.

PET FRIENDLY? Yes. Bring your cats and dogs, or whatever pets you have.

SKILL LEVEL: Beginner level.

TERRAIN: Loose gravel, typical lower desert terrain.

WEATHER : Sunny. Warm and comfortable lower 60s. Bring along a jacket in case the weatherman pulls off a trick on us.

AFTERWARDS:  Up for a vote after the hike.

MEET at:

Las Cruces: 8:30 am at the US Fairaces Post Office. See map: [masked]°N,[masked]°W (see on Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, USGS topo map). We will carpool from here so please do not be late!
