Highline Trail

  If this: Highline Trail re: Rio Arriba County. This trail runs from Polvadera Peak to Chicoma Mountain (Rio Arriba's Highest) ...and is in the JEMEZ MOUNTAINS..NOT the San Juan. It refers to Abiquiu I assume it is. More infor in July or August when we'll be exploring it!

    of available outdoors activities. There are many wonderful hiking trails in the San Juan and Jemez Mountains where you can truly take in all the beauty of these mountains.
