“A steep, rocky trail with spectacular views over Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.”— Katherine Thomas
Before the area was a national monument, ranchers brought their cattle up here during the winter, which gave this area its name.
The trail is popular for birding and for wildflowers in spring. Bring lots of water in summer as the trail is very exposed, and there is little shade.
Once you reach Bull Pasture, you can either continue to Mt. Ajo (a long, difficult day run) or make your way back via the same route or the Estes Canyon Trail.
