    Up the hill from the Ojo Caliente spa, one enters into high desert backcountry with rock formations and views from the Jemez to the Taos plateau. We will do an explore of 8-10 miles in this terrain, with an optional end-of-hike stop at the hot springs and/or restaurant. Our route will take us north and west from the hot springs, hiking to the mica mine and beyond to the overlook rocks. If we feel energetic, we can continue cross-country to the summit of Cerro Colorado, 7813' high.

    I would like to announce a two-night backpacking trip into Cruces Basin for mid-September (September 13-15). Cruces Basin is pristine wilderness located west of San Antonio mountain near the New Mexico/ Colorado border. We’ve been a few times before, and it is well worth going back. This trip will be a mellow and family-friendly adventure with a short hike to our camp followed by hikes to explore the Basin. This trip is a nice follow-up to the Beginner Backpacking class.
