Blackwater Hole-Trail #381 Professional Reviews and Guides
"A day hike in the remote Peloncillo Mountains of far southwestern New Mexico.
The hike follows up a fork of Clanton Draw to a relatively permanent pool called Blackwater Hole and up to the site of an old corral. Clanton Draw was named for the hideout of the Clanton Gang, notorious for their shootout with Wyatt Earp and others at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. The Clantons used a hideout, only a mile or so from the trailhead, to raid Mexican smuggler parties in the 1880s. Nearby Skeleton Canyon was named for the many bones left after two particularly brutal raids in 1881. The first bit of the hike follows what was once an old Jeep trail up the canyon."
