Sandy and gravel for the most part and some rocky areas depending on where you go.
Wonderful Canyon area with some cold springs and wonderful geology
The site is northwest of Socorro and about 5 miles northwest of Lemitar, NM. The area can be reached by taking the western frontage road north from Lemitar (along I-25) and driving about 5 miles. At that point, you follow a maintained dirt road west which will take you to the main canyon.
