From Questa New Mexico take NM 522 to the village of Costilla (20 miles) take a right (east) on NM 196 toward Amalia at the Shamrock gas station. The pavement will end after Amalia. Keep going past Rio Costilla Park and past the Carson National Forest boundary. The road is now marked FR 1950. at about 21 miles take a right at the junction. follow this good dirt road about 9 miles to the "trailhead" at the Grassy Creek drainage.
Thanks for the info! I put it on the page. Check it out!
Monsoons can bring heavy rain and cloud cover to the mountain in August. These factors can hamper navigation & safety. BEWARE!
I noted that. Check out the new page!
Excellent guide to the mountain but I think you meant "elk CALVING season". The mating season is in the Fall.
Thanks! I noted that on the page.
Some good information about the Valle Vidal, in which Little Costilla resides, can be found at this link (current as of 8/28/10; link may need occasional updating).
Thanks for the heads up! I'll ad it on the page. Thanks for stopping bye!
