[cdt-l] Difficulty of Routefinding

Based on the feedback I got from last year's hikers, I think they did, and
it follows the rim of the mesa for about 1.5 miles, eventually heading north
down the Arroyo... Of course, I wasn't there myself, so the info is always a
bit suspect. :-)

In May the trail was marked/cairned from Ojo de los Indios to the top of 
Mesa Portales.  After about half a mile the cairns vanished.  We followed 
our noses down the backside of the mesa to Kincaid Canyon.  Did they put new

cairns in beyond the gate on top of the Mesa?
