Not too difficult a hike, very nice views of the surrounding area. Box canyon is also a nice place to hike. The peak is just a little ways out from Las Cruces and is part of the Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument. There are several good trail near Picacho Peak. This also a good place to see cacti and colorful rocks.
Fun short hike with lots of views and some tricky scrambling.
Hiked up the BLM maintained trail with my dog Parker. I think we may have been the first up there for the year.
Took a morning stroll up to the summit while exercising my dog. Great views of the Las Cruces area.
A friend and I climbed it not knowing there was a trail until we got to the top. It was the first mountain I had ever climbed. I fell in love with mountains after that hike.
Climbed with my father in law one day after work. A nice jaunt up a local landmark.
It was sweet little mountain. Both myself and the Yorkies made it without too much trouble. Lizrdboy lead the way and we all had a beautiful day.
It was a bit if a pain finding access to the mountain from the golf course community, but once we did, we didn't see another person the whole day. We thought we were on a trail but wound up overlanding to the top - not difficult because of the sparse vegetation, but a little steep toward the top. Once there, we found the clear trail and followed it down until it petered out about a half mile from the car.
