Nogal Peak is the highest and most notable peak in the Southern White Mountain Wilderness in the southeastern part of New Mexico near the town of Ruidoso. Its easy access and stunning views make this a fine mountain for a day hike. Tall grass, scrub oak and other miscelaneous shrubbery give this cone shaped peak a unique look.
"The man who goes alone can start today, but he who travels with another must wait till the other is ready."
--Henry David Thoreau
