Hike in the Quebradas Geologic Area

  • Jan 11, 2014 · 8:30 AM

The Quebradas area is northeast of Soccoro and is disected by the Quebradas Back Country Byway, a 24 mile gravel road thru the area. It is an area of uplifted and tilted rock formations. My plan is to travel about 10 miles down the Byway, park a vehicle, then travel on another 2.2 miles and park. The hike will be back thru some geological areas to the orginal parked vehicle. The main feature we will walk around is Loma de las Canas, a tall ridge line east of the gravel road. I also want to visit some mining prospects in the area. This area is a very rugged and open landscape. We will be working our way thru numerous ravines, across open spaces, and over ridgelines. I would estimate around at least 1000 feet of elevation gain over the course. Total distance is not known but should be around 8-12 miles. I would rate this hike as Moderate to Strenous. NO DOGS OR WHINERS! You need to be in pretty good shape to complete this entire hike. This is strictly an EXPLORATORY hike. Bring plenty of water and snacks, as it will be a long day. We will probably stop in Soccoro afterwards for supper. For more information please ask your questions on this site and I will get back to you. There is no limit on number of people who can go on this hike, regardless of what the Meetup site may say. If your the type of Active Boomer who likes to sign up and then not show up, please don't bother about thinking about going on this hike!

    This was a long, dry, rough, and scenic hike. Lots of open views and deep ditches. The "prospects" were just amazing!!!!
