Hike out into rugged landscape filled with fascinating geological and anthropological features. See Gila River tributaries and a diverse array of arid plants. 

Park at the end of the 15 in the parking area. Walk all the way to the end of the road where you will find the trailhead.  This is rugged New Mexico wilderness so make sure you have proper shoes, hat, and plenty of water. This trail is very close to the Gila Cliff dwellings, which you will not want to miss.
