Mimbres River Trail #77 Professional Reviews and Guides
"A day hike or overnight trip along the Mimbres River in the Aldo Leopold Wilderness, located about 50 miles northeast of Silver City. Best season for hiking is April through December. Water is available."
--Russ Schneider, editor, Best Hikes along the Continental Divide (Falcon Guides).
"A long day hike or overnight trip along the beautiful wooded Mimbres River in the Aldo Leopold Wilderness.
The almost undiscovered mountains make a great place to lose yourself, far from civilization. This trail was chosen because it is usually accessible by any vehicle and it follows along one of the range’s permanent streams. It is one of the most popular entry points into the Aldo Leopold Wilderness, but it’s all relative. You still probably won’t see anyone on the trail."
--Laurence Parent, Hiking New Mexico - 4th Edition (Falcon Guides).
