Dripping Springs is the entry to the Organ Mountains. The visitor center has static displays of the wildlife that use the area as their habitat. The trails afford one the opportunity to explore the area up close and personal.

Nature at it's finest. The cave was stupendous. Easy hiking. The rangers were helpful. I'd advise an early morning visit.

Came here with my family and got in a great morning hike. The history and scenery were special treats. This is a highly recommended place.

Hiked this and La Cueva and took in some amazing views. The history of Dripping Springs Resort is so interesting. And your America The Beautiful Pass gets you in for free.

My friends and I did this 3-4 mile round-trip on our first full day in Las Cruces. The main trail in and out is moderate with good footing, and if you want something a bit more challenging you can keep going past the Springs up...More

Great place to spend a few hours walking hiking and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The mountains are stark. Many desert plants, just marvel at the scenery.
