There’s A Hike In New Mexico That Leads You Straight To An Abandoned Village

New Mexico is home to many fascinating pieces of history, and many of those lie within our ghost towns. This abandoned village and mining town tucked away in the Gila National Forest is a quiet town with quite a bit of history. While there are many other exciting hikes within this famous forest, there’s nothing quite as eerie or interesting as this little shadow of a mining town that used to be bustling with life. Let’s head on over to Gila National Forest and take a short trek to this old town; you may even find another hike within.
