Bart Olinger

This hike is number 36 in Craig Martin's 100 hikes in New Mexico. Craig says the elevations are from 7,025 to 8,790 ft with 2,200 ft of elevation gain. We will start at Guaje Pine(s) Cemetery, the lowest point, taking the Perimeter trail to the Mitchell trail, then hike up to the Guaje Ridge trail, then east to the Cabra trail, and finally hike down to Rendija Canyon and back to the cemetery. This is the route of the Jemez Trail Run 1/2 marathon, minus the Posse Shack spur.The distance is about 10 miles and is an excellent shakedown hike for the upcoming hiking season. Bring your daypack, clothes for the weather, a liter or two of water, lunch, and walking sticks. We will meet just beyond the entrance to the Guaje Pines Cemetery at 8:30am and we should be back by 3:00pm. Contact Bart at to sign up.  Let's limit this group to 14. Hope to see you Saturday morning.
