Prize packs include, but are not limited the items pictured.

Discover all the great hikes and amazing businesses right in your own backyard. Visit Las Cruces' Hiking and Hospitality  invites you to create the perfect Las Cruces experience by pairing your favorite outdoor trails with a visit to a local restaurant for a bite to eat, stop at a retail store or relaxing hotel staycation. By participating in the Hiking and Hospitality challenge, not only will you have a chance to win some super-cool prizes and Visit Las Cruces swag, but you’ll also be one step closer to becoming a local expert!

To take part in the challenge enter at on the Visit Las Cruces Hiking and Hospitality page. Upon entering you'll be prompted to include photos at one of the area's hiking spots -AND- at one of the hospitality businesses in town (hotel stay, local shops etc.). You'll then be registered for a chance to win one of 10 amazing prize packs. Submit your photos from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30. You can enter multiple times, as you go on different hikes and frequent different hospitality businesses. Each household is only eligible to win one prize pack. The more entries you submit, the better chance you have to win.

Both photos are required to qualify to win.

Take part in the challenge by entering online and include a photo at out on an area hike, as well as one at a hospitality business in town (restaurant, local shop, hotel).

So what are you waiting for? Lace-up your hiking boots, map out your pre- or post-hike plans, and get ready for some selfie action! Now is the time to get out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather while helping to support our local hospitality industry.
