Description

This place is called Las Cuevas! There are a ton of spots to choose from, but recommend if you want to go deep into the arroyo that you have 4x4. Make sure you pack out everything (don’t leave trash, this is a water source for the local community), and take the proper precautions for snakes, spiders and scorpions (we’re in the desert!). All along the left side of the arroyo, there are decent places to set up camp, although a few have some pretty loose sand. Don’t camp at the first big cave on the left, as there are a few bee nests that need to be protected and they will be attracted by food smells. Overall beautiful place to be in Las Cuevas!

Latest Check-Ins

You need 4x4 in some areas, but pretty easy drive in. Just at the start of the bridge there’s a road to the right ‘Las Cuevas’ which is the little population there. Take that right and then I’m ódiatelo head to your left under the bridge. There are the first set of Caves to the right that you can walk to, this area is used as a day park a lot. If you keep going straight, you’ll see various caves on the left and water hole pockets. Please watch out for the bees that have various nests up on the walls of the first big cave on the left. Do not recommend setting up camp there as any food can attract them. But if you keep moving forward, there are little natural platforms and clear areas on the left side, and a stream to the right. It’s pretty beautiful in this area. Be aware that cows and horses might be grazing in the area as this is federal land used by the local ranchers.

Report Check-In

Many spots to choose in this arroyo that actually have water. You may want to take one of the many trails away from the bridge.
Sandy, so may need 4x4
