It was a cool hike because I used to fish here as child. I could see it and remember it when I was little,but now it is like an ecological disaster. I hiked up the lake and went south down along the lake and then west up the old lake road. I hiked west up the old lake entrance road coming in to the lake from the west. Turned right as soon as I reached the top of the ridge and continued north until I came to a New Mexico Game and Fish Wildlife Area fence. Hiked about another mile and found the double arch. GPS said 5.2 miles, pretty cool hike also because of the massive amount of 1970 beer can's. It was like being an archeologist from the future
