Hike to the 1953 B-36D crash site From the parking area, climb the road to the water tank. Follow the trail east from the tank and up hill. The trail will turn right around the arroyo, then right again and downhill. When the trail turns left, look for a large rock on the right (west) of the trail. This is waypoint W-1 (N 31.80579 W 106.49340). Turn left (east) and follow the arroyo up. When the arroyo splits, follow the left side. You will return down the right side. See photo one. The red trail is up. The blue trail is down. The yellow circles are rock out-crops used as markers. The major wreckage is at the south (right) rock outcrop at N 31.80662 W 106.48733.

Challenging trail. This map app definitely did the difference. Beware of snakes! Went with my dog, he caught some thorns and had to pick him up a couple times due the challenging of the trail. You're gonna feel lost most of the time, but if you follow the live map on this app, you'll be fine. The start of the trail doesn't look like a path at all, I missed 2 times. Very challenging, but worth it to finished. Took me 3hrs in total. Almost fell into cactus a couple of times due extenuation. Choose carefully at what time of the day you go, that makes a huge difference.
