Want to visit the Sabinoso Wilderness? Now is your chance!
The Secretary of Interior recently enlarged the Sabinoso Wilderness in New Mexico by accepting a donation of 3,595 acres of adjacent lands from the Wilderness Land Trust. The donation makes public access to this wilderness available for the first time. It had been entirely surrounded by private lands, but with the donation there is now connection to a public county road. The newly added land includes highly scenic sandstone cliffs, woodlands, and riparian vegetation, which offer outstanding hiking, horseback riding, and hunting opportunities, and because of these values, will be a focal point of the wilderness.
