Car Camp IconMay 26-30 (Thu-Mon) Bandelier, Valles Caldera, and Santa Fe NF, New Mexico

The Cerro Pelado fire has forced closures of Bandelier National Monument, Valles Caldera National Preserve, and parts of Santa Fe National Forest until further notice, rendering this outing doubtful as originally planned. A go/no-go decision will be communicated to registrants on May 11. We are offering a backpacking trip on the same dates to San Pedro Parks Wilderness Area, near Cuba, NM, west of the burning area in Santa Fe National Forest. San Pedro Parks is characterized by big green meadows ("parks") lined by spruces and other conifers. Although at altitude between 9,200' to 10,200', its gentle grades make for easy backpacking and three enjoyable days. Anyone interested in backpacking at San Pedro Parks, space permitting, may contact the trip leader for information.  Trip rated: Moderate. Leader: Mark Stein Send Email 214-789-4596

We anticipate two groups on two loop routes--one a loop to Green Lake and Blue Lake, the other a loop up the South Fork Conejos River to Twin Lakes. Highest camp elevations will approach 11,800'.
