DATE CHANGE – RAINED OUT AGAIN – POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING 2018

Continental Trail Hike 

Trekking Friends,

 We’ll attempt this 2017 hike again.  Snow/rain were the culprits for past cancellations. .  We’ll try again next spring!

Description:

Drive to the trail head from Bernalillo- about 1 hour on pavement, 15 minutes on dirt. We will hike along the Continental Trail on a mesa overlooking the picturesque Rio Puerco Valley with its stark volcanic plugs and Cabazon Peak. There are wind eroded rock formations; colored clays used by Puebloans and spectacular views- a photographer’s delight.

This will be a pleasantly paced hike.

Difficulty: This is a 2 mile walk, one way (round trip 4 miles), with cairns for trail markers. Elevation of 6500 feet throughout with ups and downs of about 50 – 200 feet.  Trail is rocky and uneven with natural steps to ascend and descend but primarily a “levelish” trail. There is exposure-a steep drop off- but stay on trail and don’t go near the edge.  No facilities.

Recommended: Regular active hiker, not for immobility impaired or heart or lung issues. This is a remote outdoor walk.   

Leaders: Steve Rospopo and Dick Harris

Weather permitting.

Limit: 20 hikers

Carpools necessary
