Description: This is a moderately difficult hike into the Organ Mountains and up Fillmore Canyon, where a seasonal stream can usually be found bubbling underneath glades of ponderosa pine trees. Hikers will pass abandoned mines, archaeological sites, and be able to look out over the Mesilla Valley. A historical interpreter will be along to take hikers on a history tour, including the trips of Western legends like Billy the Kid, Geronimo, and other, lesser known, but important figures. Just twenty minutes east of Las Cruces, this superb hike is a unique opportunity for a comfortable February day.
