Palomas Gap Trail, 10 Mar 2018
Requirements: Stock 4x4, and no fear of heights

The Palomas Gap Trail (80 Miles from El Paso) is located East of Caballo
Lake, and south of Truth or Consequences.  We camp at the Percha Dam
State Park $10 for tents, and $14 for RV sites.  From the campground, we go
north on Hwy-187 and turn right at the town of Las Palomas.  We go across the
Rio Grande River (12 inches of water) and head to the trail. The Gap is a very
(VERY) narrow road on the side of the mountain, if you don’t like heights you
will ask yourself “Why did I do this”. When you’re at the top of the trail/road it
feels like your riding on the edge of the mountain with a couple hundred feet
drop straight down.  This trail is ran every year during the 4x4 Chile Challenge,
this year dates are 10-13 Oct, 2018. After we reach the top, we will drop down
into the canyon and hike a small part of the Gap. Bring your lunch…Remember
