I've.been to the Pecos Wilderness in the April 2011 and in the Oct 2012. There was snow lingering above elevations of 10,500ft in April and snow was non-existent in Oct. I don't know what the snowpack is like in March but you might want to prepare for it. The possibility exists for spring snows also, though, generally, drier conditions are prevalent starting in the Springtime and lasting until the monsoon kicks in. The Pecos Wilderness trail system seems to be designed for hiking and backpacking. All the trails are well marked and not overgrown. This area also draws a lot of equestrian use.
