Hiking New Mexico Gila Wilderness

Front Cover
New Mexico's 555,000-acre Gila Wilderness is a vast untrammeled patchwork of virtually unlimited forest types, climatic conditions, and wildlife. This rugged landscape boasts sweeping tundra, hot springs, mountain views, and deep gnarled canyons. Within Gila's boundaries, you can follow trails to views of the breathtaking peaks of the Mogollon Range, wonder at ancient cliff dwellings, and wind your way along stream-ribboned ponderosa forests.
