The Continental Divide Trail Alliance has officially disbanded
and removed the CDTA website.
Old Hwy 44 accesses Elk Springs, 10,000 acres of BLM badlands east of US 550,
directly north of the Jemez boundary. Note that the gate is locked November 16 through
May 14, closing the area to motorized vehicle use.
Sandstone outcrops northeast of the arroyo crossing are a good place to begin
exploring this area. Use the map and placemarks below to help guide you there.
