Features River/Creek

Family Friendly A flat trail along a small stream makes for a kid-friendly hike with opportunities to get wet.

Description

This is an easy trail along the Rio Bonito to a large rock etched with ancient petroglyphs.

The hardest part of this trail is getting to the trailhead. The unpaved road leading from NM-220 to the trailhead is rocky and very steep. Four-wheel-drive is recommended.

The trail can be hot in the summer as shade is minimal.

Flora & Fauna

Cedar trees, mule deer, and the occasional elk can be found in this area.
