This is the essential guide to north-central New Mexico, from the black lava badlands in El Malpais National Monument to the cool aspens in Santa Fe National Forest. Explore newly opened lands in the Ojito Wilderness and the Valles Caldera, or revisit the past with nostalgic walks along the Rio Grande and Route 66. Hikes lead to ancient pueblos, ghost towns, slot canyons, strange hoodoos and other treasures in the heart of New Mexico, all just a day trip or less from the Duke City.
Each chapter serves as both a navigational aide and an interpretive guide to familiarize hikers with wondrous destinations in the Land of Enchantment. This comprehensive guidebook outlines the level of difficulty for each hike, and includes extensive maps and trail profiles to assist hiking enthusiasts and day-trippers alike.
