Trailhead Directions From Albuquerque take I-25 north to Bernalillo. Go west on US 550 through San Ysidro, thru Cuba (reset the odometer here). At about 48.5 miles from Cuba go past the "Chaco Culture" sign. After about 3 more miles the Blanca Trading Post will be on your left. Turn left here onto CR7800 and stay on the paved road until it ends. Continue on the dirt until you reach a T intersection SR 47. Go left for about 3.5 mile and watch carefully for a two track on the right. PARK here.
