General Information

Directions: From US Highway 180 in Alma, New Mexico (just north of Glenwood) turn west at the Alma Mesa sign. This will be just north of the bridge. Upon crossing the river (do not cross when flooded) , take Forest Road 104 to the right up the river bottom. It will eventually turn west toward Alma Mesa and a junction with Forest Road 711. Continue west on FR 711 until it approaches and then parallels the fence. The trail starts near here at a walk-through gate.
