“A remote but unique trail through the southwestern mountains with beautiful vistas.”— Christopher Bare
Be prepared to answer a few questions from the Border Patrol agents who frequently patrol this area due to its proximity to the Mexican border.
The easiest route is to start in New Mexico where the road enters the Coronado National Forest. Shortly after the boundary, there will be a small pullout near a power pole that can be used to park. Accessing this road requires you to drive through several miles of remote dirt road. The road conditions can vary significantly and you may need a truck or other high clearance vehicle to access the parking area. Several miles of the road that is used to access this run goes though the Diamond A Ranch.
From the parking area, simply follow the road as far west as you like. However, once the road passes through the mountains and transitions through the western boundary of the Coronado, the terrain will level off and become wide open desert and grassland.
The major draw for this run are the amazing mountain vistas, therefore the best section of this road is from the eastern forest service boundary to Hog Canyon, just across the Arizona state line (Geronimo Trail (FS Road 63): Coronado Boundary to Hog Canyon).
