Horace Mesa is an easy dirt trail in the Cibola National Forest north of Grants, New Mexico. Running the half-loop-shaped route, you pass Lobo Canyon Picnic Ground, climb to the mesa edge, intersect with the Continental Divide Trail and Gooseberry Trail, and pass various dispersed campsites along the way. Views from the top of the mesa let you take in the beauty of the ponderosa forest. See if you can find the site featured in the camping photo. It's a gem! Most of the camping is located at the northern end of the trail.
