Fort Bayard Champion Tree is a 3.4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Santa Clara, New Mexico that features a great forest setting and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from February until November.
Very cool trail enjoyed seeing the tree, directions were a little misleading however
I really think this hike is closer to 3 to 4 miles to the Big Tree and back. It is fairly flat, wide trail.
