CITY OF ROCKS

STATE PARK LOCATED JUST 34 MILES SOUTH OF SILVER CITY, THE CITY OF ROCKS STATE

Park is the perfect place for a fun-filled daytrip or picnic. The park features giant monoliths that were formed from the erruption of an ancient volcano and eroded by the wind over an extended period of time. These huge, unusually shaped boulders are perfect for sightseeing or climbing. For some, the park resembles a medieval village; for others it is a collection of misshapen, albeit benign, giants. Essentially, it is a flat-lying sheet of reddish lava jointed along vertical rather than horizontal planes creating the likeness of a city with streets and buildings. There are formations which readily suggest giants’ chairs, prehistoric monsters, or creatures of imaginative myth. Complete with a desert garden, the park offers picnicking and camping spots. Adjacent to the formations rises Table Mountain, a perfect example of a mesa.

GILA

CLIFF DWELLINGS

National Monument

ONE OF THE ATTRACTIONS ALONG THE TRAIL OF THE MOUNTAIN SPIRITS Scenic Byway is the 533-acre Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. Here you can see the homes and catch a glimpse into the lives of Native Americans who lived here between seven and eight hundred years ago. Along with the ancient ruins, the monument features a visitor center and museum. From Silver City there are two ways to travel to the monument. The first is to go north past Piños Altos on NM 15, a winding, mountain forest road. Here, trailers over twenty feet long must take an alternate route on NM 61/35. The other route is through the Mimbres Valley north from NM 152 off US 180 east of town. This route is 25 miles longer, but easier and takes the same amount of time – about two hours. Call ahead for hours and road conditions; (505)5369461 or (505)536-9344.

BIRDING

LAKE

ROCKHOUNDING

ROBERTS Creek, Lake Roberts is a man made 75-acre lake offering some of the finest mountain fishing, boating and camping in New Mexico. Lake Roberts features boat ramps, two campgrounds, picnic spots, and variety of nature trails leading into the forest. The lake beckons fisherman, hikers and birders to experience the natural beauty of the area. Overlooking the west end of the lake stand the “Vista Ruins,” an authentic Mimbres Indian pit house site. The area is home to hundreds of species of birds, and is a wintering spot for bald eagles. As many as ten species of hummingbirds may be observed in the summertime at feeding stations along NM Highway 35 and at nearby local inns. Late March to late May is the best time to fish for the lake’s 10- to 14-inch rainbow trout, but Lake Roberts also contains crappie, catfish and some bass.

COMBINE YOUR FASCINATION WITH NATURE’S WINGED POPULATION AND the unforgettable scenic grandeur of the Gila Wilderness, America’s oldest designated wilderness area. Well over 300 species of birds have been observed in the region’s habitats, which vary from riparian lakes, streams and grassy high mesas to Ponderosa pine, piñon and juniper forests. A number of species also find the dense cottonwood trees of Silver City’s Big Ditch Park attractive, as well as the Gila River/Mogollon Creek confluence near the town of Cliff. In the Little Florida (pronounced: flor-EE-da) Mountains to the south, mineral collectors will be delighted to find an entire state park built with them in mind. Rockhound State contains abundant volcanic rock and mineral specimens, hiking trails with spectacular views and plenty of birds and wildlife. Visitors may take up to 15 pounds of minerals for their personal collections. Varieties include quartz crystals, geodes, agate, chalcedony, jasper and opal.

THE CATWALK National Recreation Trail THE CATWALK NATIONAL RECREATION TRAIL IS SITUATED IN WHITEWATER

Canyon near Glenwood. The Catwalk is a metal bridge secured into the canyon walls that leads through some of the most beautiful parts of the canyon. This 250 foot metal causeway clings to the sides of the boulder-choked Whitewater Canyon, which in some places is only 20 feet wide and 250 feet deep. There are many spots where a hiker can leave the steel causeway and relax on the grassy banks of the sycamore shaded stream.The original catwalk was a gravity fed waterline for a local mill. The mines above the canyon were worked from their discover in 1889 until 1942 (Billy the Kid's stepfather, William Antrim, was a blacksmith at the town called Graham). The Civilian Conservation Corps. was assigned the task of rebuilding The Catwalk as a recreation attraction for the Gila National Forest in 1935. The present metal catwalk was rebuilt by the Forest Service in 2004.

GERONIMO

MONUMENT IN OCTOBER 2004 ABOUT 120 PEOPLE GATHERED AT THE GILA CLIFF Dwellings National Monument Visitor Center to dedicate a monument to famous Chiricahua Apache chief Geronimo, who was born in the area in 1829. The monument was a collaborative effort between the Forest Service, the Trail of the Mountain Spirits Scenic Byway Committee, the Silver City/Grant County Chamber of Commerce, and Geronimo’s own great grandson, Harlyn Geronimo and Harlyn’s wife Karen of Mescalero. Chief Geronimo had told biographers that he was born near the headwaters of the Gila River, which is the area where the National Monument stands today. Geronimo died in Oklahoma in 1909, after unsuccessfully pleading with federal authorities to be allowed to return to his homeland to die. Harlyn Geronimo got the idea for the monument while visiting the area in the spring of 2004. Volunteers began building it on September 18 as part of the National Public Lands Day event.

TRAIL OF THE

MOGOLLON

National Scenic By-way

GHOST TOWN

MOUNTAIN SPIRITS

THIS 93-MILE LOOP IS FILLED WITH HISTORY AND SCENIC BEAUTY. TO get started, just head north on Piños Altos Rd. from US 180 East in Silver City to the old gold-mining town of Piños Altos. From there, NM 15 will take you through the Gila National Forest to the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. Leaving the monument, the byway backtracks along NM 35 to Sapillo Creek and Lake Roberts. Continuing across Continental Divide, the road descends into the Mimbres River Valley. The historic church at San Lorenzo was built in the 1800’s. Continuing west on NM 152, you will come to the mine overlook near Santa Rita, where you can view one of the world’s largest open pit copper mines. Rejoining US 180, you can turn north at Santa Clara to visit historic Fort Bayard, or continue on a short distance back to Silver City.

LOCATED ON THE EDGE OF TODAY’S GILA WILDERNESS, THE TOWN OF

Mogollon (pronounced Muggy-own) began in 1876 following the discovery of gold and silver in nearby creeks. It took its name from the surrounding mountains, themselves named for a Spanish territorial governor in the early 1700s. With the opening of the Little Fannie mine, the town boomed until 1942, then suddenly became a ghost town when the mine closed. After a brief resurgence as an artist colony in the 1960s it was deserted again. Modern-day Mogollon is home to 18 year-round residents, a volunteer fire department, and several seasonal businesses including dining and lodging establishments. It has a private museum, an historic theater and a church undergoing renovation. To visit this picturesque village, turn east off US 180 onto NM Highway 159 about three miles north of Glenwood. The scenic mountain road rises about 3,000 feet in 8.5 miles to reach Mogollon.

HISTORY

MUSEUMS THE MUSEUMS OF SILVER CITY SHOWCASE BOTH THE ANCIENT AND modern histories of the area. The detailed Victorian design of the H.B. Ailman home, built in 1881, was saved from destruction by a group of local individuals who recognized its potential as a museum. Displays, photographs, and records depict the growth of the mining and cattle industries, and of the community. The Western New Mexico University Museum houses the world’s largest permanent display of ancient Mimbres Indian artifacts. The museum also features a life-size cutaway replica of a Mimbres pit house to help visitors visualize homes built by the native inhabitants 800 to 1100 years ago. Self-guided walking tours offer an in-depth foundation about the community. The reconstruction of La Capilla Chapel, overlooking the downtown district, resurrects an intriguing chapter of local lore. Even the hundred-year history of the “Big Ditch” is a factor in defining the community.

PINOS ALTOS WITHOUT THE ASPHALT ON ITS MAIN STREET, DOWNTOWN PINOS ALTOS

looks much like it might have appeared nearly 150 years ago, when it was inhabited by the likes of Judge Roy Bean. The town’s amenities, however, have greatly improved in the last century or so. They include a museum, an ice cream parlor, dining establishments and an authentic western bar. The Pinos Altos Opera House is home to Old West melodramas, and local musicians perform regularly at the Buckhorn Saloon. Gold was first discovered in the area by Spanish and Mexican miners. Anglos rediscovered the metal in 1859/60, and for a while the town was called Birchville after the first man to find “color.” Nearly abandoned due to constant fights with the Apaches, it was re-established in 1866 under its original Spanish name. Pinos Altos is located along the Continental Divide, six miles north of Silver City on NM Highway 15.

DITCH PARK WHEN SILVER CITY’S FOUNDING FATHERS CREATED THE TOWN SITE in the latter 1800s, they laid out the grid like those of many eastern cities – with the streets running due north, south, east and west. They did not realize that the new town’s proximity to a north/south running slope would encourage a natural disaster to occur. In 1895 and again in 1903, flash floodwaters roared down Silver City’s Main Street, gouging out a huge ditch with a bottom some 55 feet below the original street level. As rains continued to feed the creek in the years that followed, cottonwood trees grew, providing shade. The town’s Main Street was gone, but every adversity carries with it the seed of an opportunity. Working together, local businesses, residents and civic organizations created a beautiful and unique downtown park. Big Ditch Park can be accessed via the footbridge at the Silver City Visitor Center parking lot.

-THE GROWTH OF SILVER CITY’S ARTS COMMUNITY IS A RESULT OF THE cultural and natural appeal of the area and a concerted effort to diversify the regional economy. The establishment of an art market unique to Silver City is indeed contributing to the economic base. Regular openings, tours, galas, and other special events have dramatically increased local involvement and developed Silver City as an arts destination. The arts play a role in almost every celebration and there are major festivals dedicated specifically to the arts. There is no doubt that art is an integral and key segment of Silver City’s lifestyle. Silver City’s recognition for its cultural depth results from the dedication and organizational expertise of numerous local groups, and the overwhelming volunteer efforts and financial support of the entire community. The city is proud of its achievements and is anxious to share them with its visitors from around the world.

TRAIL OF THE

MOGOLLON

National Scenic By-way

GHOST TOWN

MOUNTAIN SPIRITS

THIS 93-MILE LOOP IS FILLED WITH HISTORY AND SCENIC BEAUTY. TO get started, just head north on Piños Altos Rd. from US 180 East in Silver City to the old gold-mining town of Piños Altos. From there, NM 15 will take you through the Gila National Forest to the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. Leaving the monument, the byway backtracks along NM 35 to Sapillo Creek and Lake Roberts. Continuing across Continental Divide, the road descends into the Mimbres River Valley. The historic church at San Lorenzo was built in the 1800’s. Continuing west on NM 152, you will come to the mine overlook near Santa Rita, where you can view one of the world’s largest open pit copper mines. Rejoining US 180, you can turn north at Santa Clara to visit historic Fort Bayard, or continue on a short distance back to Silver City.

LOCATED ON THE EDGE OF TODAY’S GILA WILDERNESS, THE TOWN OF

Mogollon (pronounced Muggy-own) began in 1876 following the discovery of gold and silver in nearby creeks. It took its name from the surrounding mountains, themselves named for a Spanish territorial governor in the early 1700s. With the opening of the Little Fannie mine, the town boomed until 1942, then suddenly became a ghost town when the mine closed. After a brief resurgence as an artist colony in the 1960s it was deserted again. Modern-day Mogollon is home to 18 year-round residents, a volunteer fire department, and several seasonal businesses including dining and lodging establishments. It has a private museum, an historic theater and a church undergoing renovation. To visit this picturesque village, turn east off US 180 onto NM Highway 159 about three miles north of Glenwood.

THE CATWALK National Recreation Trail THE CATWALK NATIONAL RECREATION TRAIL IS SITUATED IN WHITEWATER

Canyon near Glenwood. The Catwalk is a metal bridge secured into the canyon walls that leads through some of the most beautiful parts of the canyon. This 250 foot metal causeway clings to the sides of the boulder-choked Whitewater Canyon, which in some places is only 20 feet wide and 250 feet deep. There are many spots where a hiker can leave the steel causeway and relax on the grassy banks of the sycamore shaded stream.The original catwalk was a gravity fed waterline for a local mill. The mines above the canyon were worked from their discover in 1889 until 1942 (Billy the Kid's stepfather, William Antrim, was a blacksmith at the town called Graham). The Civilian Conservation Corps. was assigned the task of rebuilding The Catwalk as a recreation attraction for the Gila National Forest in 1935. The present metal catwalk was rebuilt by the Forest Service in 2004.

GERONIMO

MONUMENT IN OCTOBER 2004 ABOUT 120 PEOPLE GATHERED AT THE GILA CLIFF Dwellings National Monument Visitor Center to dedicate a monument to famous Chiricahua Apache chief Geronimo, who was born in the area in 1829. The monument was a collaborative effort between the Forest Service, the Trail of the Mountain Spirits Scenic Byway Committee, the Silver City/Grant County Chamber of Commerce, and Geronimo’s own great grandson, Harlyn Geronimo and Harlyn’s wife Karen of Mescalero. Chief Geronimo had told biographers that he was born near the headwaters of the Gila River, which is the area where the National Monument stands today. Geronimo died in Oklahoma in 1909, after unsuccessfully pleading with federal authorities to be allowed to return to his homeland to die. Harlyn Geronimo got the idea for the monument while visiting the area in the spring of 2004. Volunteers began building it on September 18 as part of the National Public Lands Day event.

LAKE

ROCKHOUNDING

ROBERTS Creek, Lake Roberts is a man made 75-acre lake offering some of the finest mountain fishing, boating and camping in New Mexico. Lake Roberts features boat ramps, two campgrounds, picnic spots, and variety of nature trails leading into the forest. The lake beckons fisherman, hikers and birders to experience the natural beauty of the area. Overlooking the west end of the lake stand the “Vista Ruins,” an authentic Mimbres Indian pit house site. The area is home to hundreds of species of birds, and is a wintering spot for bald eagles. As many as ten species of hummingbirds may be observed in the summertime at feeding stations along NM Highway 35 and at nearby local inns. Late March to late May is the best time to fish for the lake’s 10- to 14-inch rainbow trout, but Lake Roberts also contains crappie, catfish and some bass.

COMBINE YOUR FASCINATION WITH NATURE’S WINGED POPULATION AND the unforgettable scenic grandeur of the Gila Wilderness, America’s oldest designated wilderness area. Well over 300 species of birds have been observed in the region’s habitats, which vary from riparian lakes, streams and grassy high mesas to Ponderosa pine, piñon and juniper forests. A number of species also find the dense cottonwood trees of Silver City’s Big Ditch Park attractive, as well as the Gila River/Mogollon Creek confluence near the town of Cliff. In the Little Florida (pronounced: flor-EE-da) Mountains to the south, mineral collectors will be delighted to find an entire state park built with them in mind. Rockhound State contains abundant volcanic rock and mineral specimens, hiking trails with spectacular views and plenty of birds and wildlife. Visitors may take up to 15 pounds of minerals for their personal collections. Varieties include quartz crystals, geodes, agate, chalcedony, jasper and opal.

CITY OF ROCKS

STATE PARK LOCATED JUST 34 MILES SOUTH OF SILVER CITY, THE CITY OF ROCKS STATE

Park is the perfect place for a fun-filled daytrip or picnic. The park features giant monoliths that were formed from the erruption of an ancient volcano and eroded by the wind over an extended period of time. These huge, unusually shaped boulders are perfect for sightseeing or climbing. For some, the park resembles a medieval village; for others it is a collection of misshapen, albeit benign, giants. Essentially, it is a flat-lying sheet of reddish lava jointed along vertical rather than horizontal planes creating the likeness of a city with streets and buildings. There are formations which readily suggest giants’ chairs, prehistoric monsters, or creatures of imaginative myth. Complete with a desert garden, the park offers picnicking and camping spots. Adjacent to the formations rises Table Mountain, a perfect example of a mesa.

GILA

CLIFF DWELLINGS

National Monument

ONE OF THE ATTRACTIONS ALONG THE TRAIL OF THE MOUNTAIN SPIRITS Scenic Byway is the 533-acre Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. Here you can see the homes and catch a glimpse into the lives of Native Americans who lived here between seven and eight hundred years ago. Along with the ancient ruins, the monument features a visitor center and museum. From Silver City there are two ways to travel to the monument. The first is to go north past Piños Altos on NM 15, a winding, mountain forest road. Here, trailers over twenty feet long must take an alternate route on NM 61/35. The other route is through the Mimbres Valley north from NM 152 off US 180 east of town. This route is 25 miles longer, but easier and takes the same amount of time – about two hours. Call ahead for hours and road conditions; (505)5369461 or (505)536-9344.
