This is a NM hidden gem for those who love the desert and are interested in old west mining. For a $5.00 fee (please pay!), this park has well marked and very interesting trails that educate one about the mining history of the region. Trails...More

This hike was in an area with limited parking, but we were the only folks there. Took about a 1-2 mile hike and went past most of the mines. I liked the informative signs placed near each of the mines. The trail map provided excellent...More

Great little out of the way park. Restroom, picnic and trails were immaculate and marked well. Number of options for short hikes up to about 5mi. Mine history was intersting. Nice views.

The trails were scenic. For the most part the trails were narrow. We went by several old mines. It would have been helpful if there was more signage or blazes for the trails. When we first arrived, there was a ranger-led walk that the people...More
