Need to Know
The southern segment is shown as an out-and-back which is accessible year round. The segment can be looped at certain times of the year if the marsh is drained and the route mowed. The connecting route to the west of the mapped segment is primitive and changes in alignment on a seasonal basis.
The trails in Unit A of the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge largely consist of lightly used administrative roads adjacent to the marsh ponds that function as seasonal waterfowl migration routes and year-round habitat for native wildlife.
The mapped trail is flat and easy to follow, first taking the out-and-back segment to the southern pond before returning for the north loop.
Parking is not permitted near the trailhead. Please use the designated parking lot 100 yards to the north.

Deer, elk and javelina can be found in the National Wildlife Refute year-round. Bird species are abundant but vary with the seasons.
