Brazos Cliffs

(Los Brazos NM)
From many miles away, the Brazos Cliffs can be seen rising up majestically above the surrounding landscape. However, getting to them is difficult or impossible. A paved highway goes up to the canyon, where many private cabins are built.

A lodge owns the land going into the canyon. To actually hike into the canyon, below the cliffs, one must cross these private lands which are posted with stern warnings about trespassing. Of course, one could pay to stay at the lodge and thus have access.

From the other direction, one would have to hike through the forest and mountains for many miles to reach the cliffs. Then, you would likely be at the top. Whether there is a path into the canyon, from that side, I don’t know.

    That looks like too tough of a trip for my knees; but, it is a great view.

      Since it is so hard to get to, I think you’re safe.
