Crest Trail

  This part of New Mexico is always a pleasure to visit during hiking season. There are many wonderful hiking trails in the San Francisco Mountains where you can truly take in all the beauty of these mountains. Alright, enough of spending all this time inside a building, time to get out, and Crest Trail in Catron County, New Mexico is a really good place to spend some time.
Crest Trail is a long drive away from Silver City but when you hike it you're always having
    a good time. Camping at Ben Lilly Campground is always a wonderful experience; don't leave without visiting Gila National Forest. And if that's not sufficient there's heaps more fun things to do in the San Francisco Mountains. A good
location to camp here at Crest Trail is Willow Creek Campground, and while you're here, you might as well visit West Fork Saddle. A short journey to Little Hobo Spring is always worthwhile, and paddling on San Francisco River is so much fun. Black Tail Spring is a scenic place to visit while you're at Crest Trail. The warmest time of the year at Crest Trail arrives with high temperatures in the 90's with nighttime lows in the 60's. For the duration of the winter  
highs are in the 50's; after the sun is down during the winter temperatures at Crest Trail dip into the 20's. Crest Trail is pretty dehydrated commonly. Most of the rain falls during July while April is commonly the driest month.
