The Apache Kid and Withington Wilderness Map produced by the US Forest Service contains the most up-to-date information on access roads, trails, campsites, terrain, and points of interest within the Apache Kid and Withington Wilderness Areas. All wilderness maps contain contour lines and a topographic quad index, and the vast majority contain planning tips and contact phone numbers.
Angered by his relentless raids, local ranchers hunted down and killed the Apache Kid on these grounds. To mark the site of the Kid’s undoing, the vengeful posse blazed a tree, the hacked remains of which you can see to this day.
Narrow, steep canyons bisect the peaks of the southern San Mateo Mountains, where elevations exceed 10,000 feet. The vegetation is typical of the region, with pinyon-juniper woodland down low, spruce and fir and aspen up high, and ponderosa pine in between.Hiking is easy if you manage to stay on the 68-mile trail system (the pathways are not always maintained).
