Directions From Santa Fe, Hwy 84/285 north towards Chama. At junction in Chili, (not marked) continue on 84 north (do not take 285!) Go through the town of Abiquiu and after approx 5 mi. you will come to Hwy 96. Go left on hwy 96 for about 20 miles. Just after the town of Coyote you will come to a sign that says "fuelwood Area" and 172. Turn left there onto a partially paved road with a cattle guard. After the cattle guard go 1/2 mi. and at the "Y" bear right. It will say Resumidero, road 172, and fuelwood. Go about 4 mi. to a "t" in the road, turn left, and continue on. You are now on road 103. After another 2 miles, 62 will come in on your left, ignore, stay on 103, a sign will say "rio Puerco" Another 1/2 mi. brings you to another fork, take right uphill fork as this is the main road, continue on for anonther 1-1/2 miles to another fork. Go slow here this turn is easy to miss. Turn right at this fork #93(uphill) and look for an old sign "resumidero" continue up #93 for 3 miles until you come to Campground. There are two entrances, but they are not connected. First entrance will be you to Corralitos trailhead and second entrance 1/16 mi, will put you closer to Vega Redonda traihead. Both are in view of each other but separated by the stream and a wooden fence. Stream is crossable by the pedestrian bridge or by horseback.
