The Organ Mountains

Organ Mountains

The beautiful Organ Mountains with their "needles and horns" rise just 11 miles east of Las Cruces. The tallest peak (Organ Needle) reaches to 9,012 feet.

Several thousand acres of public land in and near the mountains are managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The BLM managed Aguirre Springs, Dripping Springs and La Cueva are all worth exploring.

The Organ Mountains have an arid climate characterized by variable precipitation. The average annual rainfall for the area is 8-12 inches with greater amounts at higher elevations. Annual precipitation can range from 3 inches to as high as 21 inches. The rainy season occurs between July & September.

The tremendous variety of vegetation and wildlife along with the mild climate make the Organs' a nature lovers dream come true.
