Ascent Trip Report

From FR76 FR12 heads left about 5.2 mi. up from the highway. It's rough, suitable for high clearance 4wd. We parked at a picnic spot 1 mi. in next to the stream that runs through the canyon. Depending on how adventurous you are with 4wd roads, you could drive quite a bit farther. I hiked up the road 2 mi. and then turned around because of time constraints. From my turnaround you could see over the canyon ridge to the high peaks in the Pecos Wilderness. A beautiful and little traveled canyon!
