Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge: Mesa View Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Less than one hour south of Albuquerque is the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. This 360-square-mile refuge is home to a diverse wildlife population, including bobcats, mountain lions, black bears, coyotes, antelope, deer, and elk, to name just a few. Be sure to pack your binoculars!

Located in the heart of New Mexico, Sevilleta (Sev-ee-eta) National Wildlife Refuge is incredibly diverse and unlike any other national wildlife refuge in the country. It is managed to support many different species of wildlife, which is a unique concept. It seems to be a successful concept, though, considering that the refuge is home to over 1,200 species of plants, 89 species of mammals, 225 species of birds, 58 species of reptiles, and 15 species of amphibians!

Hikers will want to stop at the visitor center to learn more about the incredible landscape they are about to explore."
