Richard,I don't know how many will follow the CDT to the Red Rock Rd TH
(but it is very nice). Richard are you the trail angel who lives near
Red Rock Rd? I hiked it last year, having gotten a rental car in Silver
City and doing an in and out hike as a day hike from the TH's N of Jacks
Peak TH.  The trail going N from Lordsburg once you enter the Gila
National Forest is good to follow as far as being signed, I found some
of the gates being really hard to open and close when you are by
yourself.  Lynnette Brown lbrown at fs.fed.us at the Silver City Ranger
District Office has maps for those sections.  Unfortunately, from Red
Rock TH N there is no trail yet till you get Bear Mtn NW of Silver City.
There is a bus daily from Lordsburg to Silver City and Silver City to
Lordsburg.  If hikers wish to rent a car for the day (Taylor Rental
right next to the Post Office (talk to Jim Taylor) you could drive to
the trailheads and cache water.

I  've stopped at both the Circle A and the Cuban Motel. The Circle A
reeks of nostalgia of the old southwest. The building itself is over 100
years old and contains many artifacts and books of the old southwest. It
has a modern kitchen one can use. However it caters to large groups. I
was there on a week end with an elementary school class and parents. The
next night there was a 50 year hi-school reunion group. Didn't get much
sleep.

  The Cuban motel is definitely not luxurious, but its quite and there
is a great cafe across the street. The owners are true trail angels. I
droped in after a day in the desert without food or water with sever
foot problems. The owners feed me supper and eventually drove to to
Grants so I could continue my hike. So take your pick.

didn't show "red rock road" or FR 851 and that is where the new sections
of the CDT down from Burro peak dump them. Water is still good in three
places North of Burro Peak to Red Rock Road however until there are new
maps out that show this leg I don't think many will come my way.

waist then the water would be swift enough to throw off the center of

really see the bottom and where you where putting your feet. The west
fork was a lot more clear and was easier to see how deep the water was

Hi, all.  Thought I'd take a look at the CDT-L and perhaps sometime this
summer take a look at some part of the trail in New Mexico.  I have
certainly wanted to do so for long enough!

You might recognize my name if you've been on the list for a while.
It's been an interesting few years...

Thanks, Jim. I've been from Everett, Washington to Miami, and from south
of San Diego to northern Massachusetts -- and everywhere in between.
Everywhere you can get an 18-wheeler, that is.  Through it all I
remember the CDT and my desire to see it. Maybe I'm too old & fat now, I
dunno, but perhaps a few day hikes will happen.

Hey, I was at REI in Albuquerque a week or two ago and they had some
flyers about various volunteer projects.  Geez, it brought tears to my
eyes!  How WONDERFUL!

That's all for now, I've probably spoken too much already, but it's sure
good to have you and Ginny as the return address of my first answer from
the list!

Earl
