Cruces Basin Wilderness Map

The Cruces Basin 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 Cruses Basin Wilderness. All wilderness maps contain contour lines, a topographic quad index and contact phone numbers, and the vast majority contain planning tips and descriptions of the terrain.

Cruces Basin Wilderness, located just south of the Colorado line, contains some of New Mexico’s most pristine country. Cruces Basin Wilderness contains great opportunities for solitude.

A mountain plateau sets the stage, with backdrops ranging from ridges covered in spruce, fir, and aspen up to 10,900 feet to a grass carpet that extends down to 8,600 feet.
