Organ Needle

The Needle hike is 8 miles round trip, with 4,000' elevation gain. It takes about 9 hours. The steepness is oftentimes something catches a hiker off guard.  And then there's that one spot of class 4 climbing.

Meet us at Milagro Coffee at 7:30am for carpool or at La Cueva picnic area parking lot at 8:00am.

Questions or concerns call or text Yubao at 5755202969.
