Three Rivers Trail
Lincoln National Forest

About the Hike:
In Contrast with the sloping east side of the range, the rugged west face of the Sierra Blanca is a formidable barrier where the mountain front jumps 4,000 feet from the base to crest. Three Rivers Canyon provides a route into the range from the west, a hard trip by any means. A day hike into the canyon is a delightful wild experience that few people take. The steep and rugged canyon holds flowing water throughout and hikers quickly leave the desert scrub and enter shady forest.
length of the hike: 7 miles total. In and out.
Skill Level: Moderate
