Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In the late nineteenth century, the sprawling Maxwell Land Grant covered more than a million acres of the northern Sangre de Cristo Mountains. That such a huge piece of prime real estate was not in the public domain was too much for some neighbors to accept.

Many small ranchers established homesteads on the grant, believing that eventually the land would be rightfully declared open to the public. The grant managers called them squatters."
