This is the premier hike near Truth Or Consequences, NM. It is strenuous, steep, and rocky. The trail is clear for the first half, but the second half mostly follows the top of the ridge.
Total Distance: 4.5 miles
Total Ascent: 2200 ft; Max-Min: 1800 ft

From the center of Truth Or Consequences, take 3rd St east toward Elephant Butte Dam (Hwy 51). Immediately after the road crosses the Rio Grande (actually the second bridge), turn right onto a dirt road and drive 2 miles. After the first cattle guard there is a small parking area on the left. The trailhead is around the right side of the hill next to the parking area.

It is as strenuous as it is worthwhile. I only made it 2/3 of the way but plan to finish next time!
