Ojito Wilderness - GPS hike

Sat, 2014-03-15
Jean Dewart

This 6 mile hike is #42 in the Sierra Club book on Day Hikes in the Santa Fe area.
The Ojito Wilderness was established in 2005 and is just west of San Ysidro.  The area has beatiful high desert scenery with views of Cabezon and the Red Mesa cliffs.  
This is an off-trail hike, estimated to take 6 hours to complete.  There is no trail - it is a cross country hike over rough terrain.  The guidebook provides 20 waypoints for the round trip hike.  I'll send out the waypoints prior to the hike, so that participants can load them into their GPS ahead of time.
Email Jean to sign up for the hike; I'll send out the meeting place to participants.  We will leave Los Alamos at 7 am, returning about 6 pm.  It is an equal distance drive for folks who live in Santa Fe - we'll help organize carpools from SF also.  Bring water, lunch, sun hat, and hiking gloves might be useful.  (If the weather forecast is for a strong spring wind storm, we might consider postponing, as this area would be exposed to the wind)
