Pine Tree National Recreational Trail... proclaims the sign at the trailhead!

This exquisitely oriented BLM campground is host to a variety of hiking trails and routes, but by far the standout is this exceptional looping route.

It winds up and down... around... twisting among the rock gorges...

Stop and listen... you will hear the gurgling of hidden streams. And, Always... you are overshadowed with the towering spires of the Sawtoothed Organ Mountain Range.

The Rabbit Ears... Baylor Peak... Organ Peak... and the Organ Needle just a few of the outstanding spires jutting out above.

The trail is sunny... then shadowed.

It goes steeply up... then it ambles gently around. It winds in and out of drainages, the views ever changing...ever spectacular.

You can even enjoy a few overnight campsites along the way. Though only four miles it can provide a day full of fun.

What more to say... this is one for everyone!

There is a Day Use Fee...
Hours of Operation: Winter: 8-5 May expand 8-7 in Summer.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.

    To hike
    Along Hiway 70 Between Las Cruces and White Sands Missile Range... just East of the San Augustine Pass, turn into the poorly marked access road for the Aguirre Springs Recreation Area. Follow this paved road into the park area... winding your way around this one way route until you reach the clearly signed trail head area. Pay your day use fee (or use your annual pass). Bathrooms available!
