located off highway 14, the turquoise trail scenic byway, the property takes you in 3 1/4 mile closer to the gorgeous view, including la bajada, that makes the trail scenic-worthy. the site, near the edge of the mesa also affords this beautiful view, which i call aztlan view.
no exact check-in or check-out. i consider 1 night stay to afford you 24 hours from arrival, not more. please arrive before dark.
please no open fires. per request of neighbors.
this is sacred land. loud children, music and or partying is not appropriate here and will disturb the locals and the wildlife. especially please observe quiet hours, 10pm-6am.
leave land as you found it or better. pack it in, pack it out.
please no conspicuous drug use or drunkeness.
the road is a private one. residents do not appreciate strangers walking around on 'their road.' i will gladly show you there two trails on the property you are welcome to explore. dogs should be leashed for their safety and to respect natural habitat.
this beautiful location is remote and serene. it is also 3 1/4 mile down an unpaved road which is fairly flat but not easy. high clearance recommended and 4x4 advised during inclement weather. if in doubt scope it out ahead. i do it in my motor home but i go 5 miles an hour and it takes 45 minutes. (totally worth it though)
you'll turn left from the road onto the drive which soon becomes circular. veer right and you can back into the site from in front of the gate. you can stay hitched or unhitch and leave 2nd vehicle parked right there or off a bit, there is space. if you require pull-through parking you are welcome to stay within the circular drive area as long as you don't block resident's truck.
we live and work on the property. someone is always home. open availability but keep apprised of weather conditions. heavy rain or snow can make road inaccessible.
the property is about 5 miles south of charming madrid, and about 7 from lovely cerrillos along the turquoise trail. santa fe is a 45 minute drive and albuquerqe is about an hour away.
