Ascent Trip Report

Started the hike on Urraca Wildlife Management Area which is NM state land. Its located off NM-522 between Costilla and Questa. The entrance is not signed but is just past mile marker 34. The area is open April 1 through May 14 and July 1 through December 14. Avoid hunting season. You must have a NM hunting/fishing license or a recreational permit. Motorized Vehicles are not allowed beyond the parking area.

Rode a mountain bike from the trailhead to the saddle that serves as the boundary between the Uracca WMA and private lands. The distance from the parking lot/trailhead to a boundary fence/gate is about 6.2 miles one way. It's all on a wide road. Only way to access the area is via hiking or biking as motor vehicles are prohibited. Forest roads will take you close to the peak.
