Durango Botanic Garden - Farmington Nature Hike
9:00am / Trail from Mesa Verde Middle School
This is a hike down in Farmington in the wilderness area around San Juan College and Pinon Hills Golf course. We would cover 4.5 to 5 miles of dirt trail, no great big elevation challenges, but some hills. I think it would take about 3 to 3.5 hrs., max, with a maximum of 10 participants. We could meet at Mesa Verde Middle School parking area at 9am. Participants should bring plenty of water and snacks, if desired. Some years the sago lilies, penstemon, cacti, yucca and scorpion weed are spectacular, other years, not so great, depending on moisture received - it's always different each spring. Pluses are that there are no great crowds, so parking is not an issue, and it is not terribly strenuous.
