GPS coordinates- ±36°10.530’N 105°48.210’W

nearest town- Dixon is 4½ miles west of here
fun fact- this is great backcountry…!!! Do an Embudo Box hike with it… a… or… are you a fisherman…????
Stay a couple Days
It is a must for you to have very good topo map reading abilities to find your way into this great waterfalls place. I highlighted the route I used in “light red” on the map below. This is wild country…. You can almost feel a mountain lion nearby. Plan on visiting this whole area in one shot… Cañada del Agua, Trampas, Embudo, Ojo Sarco…. Everything here… it’s ALL difficult but it is good stuff. Avoid the high-water time of spring run-off.
...recently another new locked gate is blocking this north-side access... sorry-
