CDT | Northern New Mexico | 4 Days | 325 Miles | Elev. 6,500 to 11,200 ft. | NMBR’s Camino del Tesoro Overland will traverse the scenic high-country of northern New Mexico during the vibrant fall season—when the aspens are golden and the air is crisp. Areas of exploration will include San Juan Mountains, Continental Divide, Taos Plateau, Sangre de Christo Mountains, and Valle Vidal.
The Camino del Tesoro Experience: This Late-September, New Mexico Backroads will guide a four-day, 325-mile overland adventure that will traverse the Land of Enchantment’s spectacular and rugged high-country. NMBR’s Camino del Tesoro Overland route was featured in the Spring 2014 Overland Journal story Finding Forrest’s Treasure by Dr. Jon Solberg. The story charts Dr. Solberg and (NMBR guide) Jake Quiñones’ journey across the volcanic fields, mountains and canyons of northern New Mexico in search of Forrest Fenn’s hidden (multimillion dollar) treasure. The Camino del Tesoro Overland route will feature vivid fall colors, high-altitude shelf road, cold water creeks, golden grass meadows, historic sites, high-desert plateau, dense forest and wildlife viewing opportunities. Over three quarters of the Camino del Tesoro Overland route will be comprised of unpaved backroads. Route and camping location elevations will range in altitude between 6,500 and 11,900 feet. All nights will be spent camping deep in the backcountry and enjoying the company of fellow adventurists. Please visit the NMBR Photo gallery linked HERE for a preview of the Camino del Tesoro Overland experience.
Where & When: The Camino del Tesoro Overland will take place Monday, September 26th through Thursday, September 29th. Participants will meet the morning of September 26th in far northern New Mexico; the exact departure time and location will be provided during the EDO registration process. Planning & Preparations: The Camino del Tesoro Overland will require participants to be self-supportive with regards to vehicle, equipment, meals and supplies. Services of any kind, including cell, fuel, or anything remotely civilized, will be unavailable for stretches of up to 200 miles. In the time leading up to the CDT registered participants will be provided with extensive information on how to prepare for the adventure, what to bring and what to expect. Over the past decade, NMBR has written a series of informative overland travel based articles with topics ranging from field tool kit assembly, to vehicle maintenance and upkeep, to equipment and gear advice. These articles, paired with extensive vehicle, equipment, provision and preparation lists are provided to participants in the time leading up to the adventure. During the CDT planning and preparation period, NMBR is available to provide expert opinion and feedback to participants for any questions or concerns related to getting ready and gearing up for the adventure. The self-sufficient aspect of NMBR guided expeditions and overland adventures and trail runs challenges and prepares participants for their future 4WD based endeavors—to go boldly, prepared, and with confidence. Pricing: $595.00 (+ USFS land use fee & tax) per person. Email NMBackroads@gmail.com for full Camino del Tesoro Overland details or to register.
