Caballo Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Although the summit of Caballo Mountain is closed to public access, the landmark meadow on its south fl ank provides one of the most extensive views in the Jemez Mountains. The view across the Rio Grande rift to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains is ample reward for the long, steep climb to the top.

The journey to Caballo is made more challenging by the fact that the trail crosses Guaje Canyon—a 900-foot ascent on the return. The trip leads through several high meadows, which are prime elk habitat, and offers viewpoints into the Valles Caldera National Preserve along the way."
