    Access is no longer available via 150A. Private land is heavily posted. Trail has been re-routed with access being via Continental Divide Trail head off of 150, approximately 2 miles past 150A turnoff. Currently, the re-route trail is not shown on Forest, Wilderness Area, or topographic maps, yet on the ground is well marked and easy to follow. This access adds approximately 3 miles of hiking across beautiful but rugged pinyon, juniper, live oak covered hills/canyons before entering the Mimbres River canyon. Once in the canyon, you will experience one of the most diverse, pristine ecosystems I've yet experienced in North America. The "trail" to Mimbres Lake however is indiscernible in many places above 8000', due to extensive deadfall.
