Lincoln National Forest: FR 5530
Unfortunately our original plan, to hike Rattlesnake Canyon at Carlsbad Caverns National Park did not work out due to the Loop Road being closed. Instead we decided to head into Lincoln National Forest to hike an old road that starts behind the Guadalupe Administrative Site. Due to last summer's fires, that too was closed. As a last resort we drove to the Guadalupe Rim Road and headed to a random road we found marked on the map: FR 5530.
It turned out to be not the most interesting hike, but still it was nice to get outside.
