    Steve have to say you are one of the nicest people I have meet in Las Cruces since I have moved here and one of the most patience. Your hikes are always fun and doesn't matter your speed of hiking. I do grandma speed and yet we all finish safe and sound. thanks again for all you do.

    I am interested in going! It will be my first time and please don't mind if I ask some questions:
    1) can my kids (11 and 8, they are pretty good at hiking) go with me?
    2) where is Achenbach trailhead? I live at Sonoma Ranch and wonder if it is more convenient for us to meet you at Achenbach trailhead?
    Thanks!

    can you tell me where the trail head is located. I think this is close to Dripping Springs and I live close to there. Also, for dogs how hard is this hike?
    Thanks

    I'll be out of town that day but I would like to go back to that area now that it is greener.
