Organ Peak Run

This is my newly favorite Las Cruces trail run. Desert to pines, granite boulders, steep ascending, ridge line running and scrambling, remnants of past military operations, great views and a good summit with friends. I would definitely call this an adventure run, as most are in the Organs.

Route: Dripping Springs Recreation Area gate to La Cueva/Crawford Trail to Filmore Canyon trail all the way to the summit of Organ Peak

Distance: 13 miles from the gate, about 10 from La Cueva (roundtrip). Approximately 4000 feet of elevation gain. 3-5 hours running.
