We love that Las Cruces is surrounded by gorgeous mountains, valleys, peaks and so much more. We love the Dripping Springs Trail. If you hike it at the right time of year, you can enjoy the small waterfall at the end of the trail. It makes a great weekend activity. Hike to the waterfall and enjoy a picnic lunch while watching the fresh waterfall flow. We recommend checking out this awesome scenic trail, but be sure to account for the 5$ parking fee.
