This trail travels along the edge of San Luis Mesa offering excellent views of Cabezon Peak and the other volcanic formations in the middle Rio Puerco Valley. The trail is well marked with cairns and the occasional Continental Divide Trail insignia punched into tin markers. The terrain is mostly juniper-pinon forest in red sandstone surroundings. About five miles from the trailhead the trail drops down from the top of the mesa to the base. It follows the base of the mesa for another two miles to Lumber road where you can have another vehicle waiting. Lumber road is also a dirt road that is best driven by a 4WD vehicle.
