This trek follows an active jeep trail deep into the Peloncillo Mountains. It follows Skeleton Canyon, which has been an important travel route through the range since pre-Columbian times. According to legend, a band of travelers was waylaid and massacred in the canyon in the late 1800s, and coins and human bones turned up in the wash for years after the event. A massive butte looms to the southeast, while the northern side of the canyon is guarded by a low palisade of cliffs ornamented with finely carved pillars and spires. These fascinating formations persist as far as Pine Canyon, where a marked trail runs southward into the heart of the Peloncillos.
