When we wanted to wander the Lincoln National Forest in southern New Mexico, we went to the Sacramento Ranger Station in Cloudcroft and bought this paperback book. It’s a little out of date. Later, I found more data online by Lynn Melton. I appreciate the graphics, and especially the gps track which I can upload in my gps, telephone, or tablet. I certainly like a device that shows me when I’m off trail. Drop the file into GPX Viewer and I can see the altitude profile.
Combining data from book and online, I’m pretty sure I’ve got an accurate description of the trails.
