Directions from ABQ: US550 to NM 4. After 9.5 miles, turn left onto NM475. 475 turns into FR376. After @12.5 miles from where you left NM 4, you will see a "road closed sign & gate. Park near it. The trailhead is across the bridge on your right.

Whenever the trail forks, keep left. The first 2 miles or so is a moderate hike. The last .4 to the top of the mesa is steep with lots of loose rock. There are some great views to be had from the top where it is fairly level. Definitely doing this one again.
