Description

Turn off of highway 180 toward Faywood on NM 61. Just past Faywood Hot Springs, turn off onto City of Rocks Road and follow the road down into the state park. Park near the rear of the visitors centre and begin the ride at the Hydra trailhead. The trail is very well marked and several sun shelters are present along the trail. Watch for hikers as this is a popular hiking trail.
