Ascent Trip ReportI'd done Sierra de DF once before using the Mondragon Trail up from Taos Canyon. This route is much shorter.
Garcia Park is a large high mountain meadow, a nice spot for picnics or camping. The South Boundary Trail passes through it. From our picnic spot it was about 1.9 mi. to a spur trail that goes up to the top, although I missed it and went a bit past before doubling back.
Great views on top and a strange teepee made of sticks.
