About 2 miles east of Abiquiu there is a parking lot just south of US84 by Santa Fe National Forest, Espaniola District. Look for the Poshuouinge sign.

Without a large amount of effort, you'll get a nice view of the Chama River Valley (especially beautiful in autumn), and the 500-year-old Tewa pueblo ruins on the plateau below. Plus, expansive views of the surrounding mountains, including Georgia O'Keeffe's favorite, the flat-topped Pedernal. A nice hike if you don't have a lot of time, or want to appreciate the landscape from an elevated vantage point.

The trail was pretty rocky but decent. Only half a mile climb to the top, nothing spectacular.
