We will park at the west end of the trail and hike all the way to east end in Aguirre Spring and back.
It's a hike most local hikers are familiar with. One way 5.4 miles, and that makes the round trip bout 11 miles. From west to east about 1500' elevation gain. The way back only 800'. We meet at Kmart at 8:00. Or, if you come from Alamogordo, meet us at trailhead at 8:20.
Well maintained trail.
Hikers have the choice of turning around at the pass and that makes about 7 miles.
