Rarely hiked and difficult to follow, the Cross Canyon Trail is for strong, experienced hikers only. Loose, rocky footing and an indistinct path require patience and good map-reading skills. Tremendous vistas and access to the Rio Grande reward those hikers who make the extra effort necessary to follow the route. The 7.0-mile one-way distance shown above is from the trailhead to the river on the left fork of the trail. The distance from the trailhead to the Mariscal Rim Trail is similar.
