We had a rancher explain to us the posting of No Trespassing signs on roadside gates in New Mexico. It is legal to walk the road, but consider the land on either side of the road as private property. The ranchers must post the access to the land as No Trespassing, and posting at the gates satisfys that requirement.

  Sometimes that's easier said than done.  Forgetting Dick's adventure for the moment, on the CDTS route somehwere between Deming and Mimbres on county roads there were two gates crossing the road with no trespassing signs, one at Ten Canyon Ranch and another further up.   

  In such instances, you really have very little choice but to trespass, if walking on county road constitutes trespassing.
