    This is a very good gravel bike ride. In March 2022, it wasn't too hot. But there is almost no shade so sun protection is important. There are a few steep and paved sections but it's mostly pretty easy gravel riding. The best stop for a break or lunch is at the Bull Pasture trailhead, where there are shade structures with picnic tables. For me, this was a combination of a scenic ride and one of my first outdoor rides of the year (training). It's worth noting that the ride from about the Arch Canyon trailhead back to the Visitor's Center is mostly downhill, making for a nice return after the long uphills.

    This is a fairly easy hike for several reasons. The elevation change is minimal, the trail is extremely well maintained, and it's well marked. The ruins at the Victoria mine are maintained and worth seeing. There were about 15-20 people between the campground and the mine. No one between Victoria mine and the Lost Cabin. The selection and variety of cactus after the Victoria mine was outstanding. It's 8 miles round trip and well worth it if you have the stamina. Pick your season and weather with care.

    Distance is one-way. Absolutely stunning hike. You’ll find rolling terrain for the first mile past Bull Pasture, then a steady to steep uphill until you reach the ridge line. Once on the ridge it’s rolling (and windy) approach to the summit. Absolutely stunning views the whole way and you’ll have them mostly to yourself. This hike is not publicized by the Park so most hikers turn around at Bull Pasture. The trail is clear and easy to follow. However, the steep parts aren’t supported with erosion proofing maintenance work. So, footing can be tricky unless you have good traction on your soles.

    4wd and hike through Organ Pipe NM. We did get a flat, so be prepared! Entire route is in great condition for any SUV. Spectacular vistas!

    No driving day in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Walked this trail from camp to visit the visitor center. Large variety of cactus and well maintained trail.

    I had wanted to hike to Dripping Springs without the drive around North Puerto Blanco Rd. Instead I started at the Pinkley picnic area on North Puerto Blanco Rd at the end of the 2 way Rd. The terrain was open and moderately easy. The spring was running and lush.
