Update May 29: The Santa Fe National Forest is closing, but this hike should not be affected becauses it is in the Carson National Forest.

Jicarita Peak is one of the highest peaks in New Mexico, standing out at the northeast corner of the Pecos Wilderness, and the northernmost of the Truchas complex of peaks that is visible on our eastern skyline. This hike gains 2500 feet in a 5.5 mile jaunt to the summit, then returns along the same route for 11 miles total. We will summit out at 12,835 feet. The trailhead is about a 2 hour drive from Los Alamos. We will leave at 7 AM from Los Alamos, drive to the trailhead, then head for the summit at a modest pace. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, a sun hat, lunch, and clothing options that will be suitable from a cool windy summit or a warm slog up.
