Description

Starts at NM400 pavement and heads 1.5 miles west through rolling meadow to Milk Ranch Canyon. After crossing the rippled rock bottom, follow the trail to the right along the south canyon rim, then up a side canyon with a few steps and finally a large cave where the trail leaves the drainage and starts to climb up the ridge.

After the extended climb finally levels out there is an intersection with Quasimodo Trail on the right, then a short distance farther a view point spur on the right. The trail heads down soon after and returns to Milk Ranch Trailhead via a lollypop loop down a long abandoned road corridor.
