Our public lands belong to all of us. Get out and explore! But first a few ground rules and tips for staying safe:
Most of the public land in New Mexico is remote country. It is accessible from unimproved; sometimes four wheel drive, roads and tracks. Be prepared to be self-sufficient with water, food, shelter, GPS, maps, and recovery tools and skills. There are NO services in these remote areas. Cell phone reception is rare.
Unless driving through on a county, state or federal highway, you must have prior written permission to be on tribal, military, state trust, or private land…even when crossing to get to public lands.
