Recreational Opportunities

The Sabinoso Wilderness is surrounded by private land, there is no public access at this time. If you are granted permission by one of the surrounding private landowners, primitive types of recreation, such as hiking, backpacking, camping, wildlife viewing, photography, and horseback riding may be enjoyed. Trails in the wilderness consist of some unmaintained old vehicle routes (closed to vehicles).

Climate and Special Equipment Needs

Water is scarce but may be found seasonally in pools along ephemeral streambeds (tinajas), springs near Largartija Creek and Canon Vivian, earthen stock tanks, and playa lakes. Occurring primarily in spring and summer, annual precipitation ranges between 14 and 18 inches and drains into Olguin, Silva, Muerto, Vivian, Agapito and Largo Canyons outside the wilderness boundary.
