Pine Tree Loop at Aguirre Springs

A nice hike for both beginners and intermediate hikers, Pine Tree Loop starts in the high upper desert and takes you into the pine trees and junipers; it's surprising how many people from El Paso and Las Cruces don't know the pine trees are so close!

Please bring plenty of water, hat, sunscreen, and appropriate footwear.

DISTANCE is ~5 mi, roundtrip.

ELEVATION GAIN is ~1000 ft gained.

FEES: $5/vehicle, paid at the trailhead If you have a Federal Lands Pass, please bring them; they are accepted here.

DURATION: Finish by early to mid afternoon.

PET FRIENDLY? Yes. Bring a muzzle (you shouldn't need be told to bring a proper leash), and if you'd like to unleash, ask others before you do so.

SKILL LEVEL is reasonably beginner friendly; if you're a beginner you can definitely do this and will be glad you did.

TERRAIN well-maintained trail.


AFTERWARDS is TBA; we'll probably grab lunch in Las Cruces.

MEET for carpool at:

Las Cruces: 7:30 am, K-Mart parking lot on North Main/US 70 and Del Rey, near Shell. See map (OpenStreetMap or Google Maps).

Pine Tree Loop trailhead: 8:00 am.
