This is a day hike in the northeastern corner of the Jemez Mountains, accessible from Abiquiu. It is hike #3 in the Salzman’s classic “Hiking Adventures in Northern New Mexico.” Per their guide, “this is a beautiful hike .. to the west of the Abiquiu Land Grant.. following little-used trails to a mesa top near the base of Polvadera Peak [3rd highest point in the Jemez]…The name means ‘canyon of the little springs.’ On the way back from the mesa top, the hike follows the valley, avoiding the more exposed top as the afternoon goes on and the risk of thunderstorms increases.

San Antonio Mountain is the very large dome just south of the Colorado line, seen to the west of highway 285 on the way north from Tres Piedras to Antonito CO. At 10,908 feet, it stands alone, a half mile above the sagebrush plains.  The hike will be a trailless climb of  2000 vertical feet and 5 miles round trip. From the top, we can look out for the long view over the Taos plateau. As of June 30, the weather looks promising, with the 5th seeming to fall in a relatively dry spell.

Join me on a backpack July 4 through 7 on a section of the CDT. Which section we'll do will depend on snow conditions. My plan is to set up a car shuttle, so we can do a stretch of trail without repeats. For now, let me know if you are interested, and we'll take it from there. Expect about 12+/-2 miles or so per full day (less on the driving days), depending on elevation gain. Return on Sunday will be early in the day so that we can get ready for work on Monday.

This is an easy meadows/open canyon hike in the Jemez, perhaps 6 miles round trip, and worth an explore. A trip description can be found at https://www.dogofthedesert.net/calaveras-canyon/. Let's go take a look! We will leave Los Alamos at 8:30 AM Saturday morning, and carpool as much as possible because I understand that parking can be tricky. Bring lunch, water, and gear for both sun and rain. We ought to be back home by dinner time.
