Event details

Let's disappear into the first designated wilderness in the world, New Mexico's beautiful and vast Gila National Forest, October 10-13, 2024.


The exact route is TBD, but I have spent quite a bit of time in this region and plan for us to spend three nights in the backcountry on a multi-day northeast-ish to southwest-ish traverse of the Gila. Expect approximately 100 trail miles.


We will traverse high country, low country, and everything in between. If we get lucky, we might get some fall color. The trails are pretty easy and almost any high-clearance 4x4 should do fine. The camping is dispersed and rugged, so you'll need to plan to be fully self-sufficient (including BYO toilet).


I'm limiting this to myself plus five other vehicles.  Multiple people per vehicle are fine as long as you're sleeping in the same tent or doing a RTT. The campsites in the Gila don't tend to be huge, so a medium-sized group will do better.


This will be a Club Member trip.
