If you regularly hike, camp, fish or mountain bike in the national forests around Albuquerque or Santa Fe, you might be feeling a bit…well…restricted.
But with a little planning, o utdoor experiences – even wilderness ones – can still be had.
All Ranger Districts in the Cibola National Forest and Santa Fe National Forest are closed. But the Carson National Forest in Northern New Mexico, the Gila National Forest in Southwest New Mexico and the Lincoln National Forest in the southeast are still open.
In addition, the BLM lands are also open, although under some fire restrictions as well.
