We hiked this trail during the early afternoon in May and it was HOT! There is no shade. It is a short hike, though, with nice views of the Florida Mountains. Well maintained, easy to follow trail. Lots of lizards and cicadas. Hiked with our dog (on a leash) and only saw one other person. While I don't think it's spectacular enough to warrant a special trip, it's worth a stop if you're in the area. Also, a note about the campground: while we didn't stay there, it didn't look that nice. The sites are close together with very little privacy.

This Park has a small trail of about a mile named Thunder Egg Trail. We took this trail and then we went up on another to the right, not very used, that takes you to the top of the mountain, steep but not difficult to hike. At the top we walked on an area that does not have a marked trail, but it is an easy terrain to walk. From this area you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Florida Mountain. We returned by the canyon to the right from the top, sometimes we walked on the arroyo, very nice. We arrived to the Thunder Egg Trail and walked on the loop to the right until we finished at the point we started. On the trail and around the park you can enjoy the beautiful yellow poppy flowers, they say that sometimes there are a lot that the place looks as a big yellow carpet. Although we only saw a few, the visit worth it, we enjoyed a lot.

on Mimbres River Trail

Sunday, May 31, 2015

We did an overnight hike along the Mimbres River during the Memorial Day weekend. During the first 2.5 miles, we were worried about the seemingly lack of a water source. Once we reached the sandy portion, however, we were relieved to see that the river wasn't dried up after all. Also note, the river is more of a stream and you have to cross it several times so be sure to douse your boots with water repellent before you hit this trail. If you're camping out at the fork, be aware that this is a wilderness home to bears, mountain lions and bobcats. The only wildlife we encountered were a group of incredibly noisy turkeys in the middle of the night. Overall, this was a nice little trip.
