Beyond Montezuma, Hwy 65 leads to the eastern edge of the forest, where trails head off into the Pecos Wilderness. The most popular day hike, a 10-mile round-trip starting at El Porvenir campground , follows trail 223 to the flat summit of Hermit Peak (10,160ft), with amazing views. Some sections switchback steeply and might be a little unnerving if you're prone to vertigo. To pick up topo maps and free trail guides, stop into the ranger station.
