Overall we really enjoyed this hike! Forest Road 639 is easiest with an off-road capable vehicle as we helped a Subaru to freedom after getting stuck. The hike is great with a steady incline that increases over the last mile or so. Watch the weather forecast... we were caught in some heavy rain even with low chances predicted. San Leonardo Lake is another one of New Mexico’s hidden treasures! Good for a day hike or for backpacking over night!
