Details

The area is behind Picacho Mountain – south west of the Robledo Mountains. It’s a small range of volcanic hills about 15 miles west of Las Cruces in Dona Ana County. It is BLM land accessible by a well-maintained county road that passes through the Corralitos Ranch. It is well known for rock climbing the deposits of rhyolite tuffs and flows.

Meet at Fairacres Post Office on Picacho Ave for carpooling. We’ll proceed to the trailhead and hike on the rock climbers access trail to the nearby cliffs. As we reach the back of the mountain, we will encounter some loose rock but the views will make this hike so worth it.

The high point of the hill has a prominence of 672 feet which is what we will hike and total elevation of 5402 ft. This mountain is very similar to "A" Mountain.
