The Perchas Trail – Trail #418 is roughly a 2 mile long trail that runs from the Palomas Trail – Trail #50 to the Rio Puerco Trail – Trail #385.
Trail Conditions: Moderate
Penas Negras Trail to the Palomas Trail
From the junction with the Penas Negras Trail, the Perchas Trail follows the Rito de las Perchas downstream through a wide valley. At first, there won’t be any discernible trail to follow, but the route should be obvious. Simply continue downstream through the valley as it slowly narrows. The trail will emerge on the northwest side of the creek just before crossing a small tributary. Shortly after this, the trail will enter the trees and you will come to the signed junction with the Palomas Trail.
