Geocache Description:

Visit Deer Pass Cache details at the DGP

The cache is hidden near Deer Pass in the Sandia Mountains. Count on at least a 10-mile (round-trip) hike to the cache, with an elevation gain of around 3,000 feet.

The cache is hidden near the intersection of Embudito Trail and the South Crest Trail. There are a number of different trails that you can take to reach this area: South Crest Trail, Embudito Trail, Canoncito Trail, Bart's Trail, Three Gun Spring Trail to Oso Pass then go up Embudito Trail. I hiked up Embudito Trail to hide the cache. See for more information about these trails.

You are in for a very long day's hiking, approximately 10 miles round-trip. Take plenty of water, sunscreen, and snacks.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful area at the southern end of the Sandia Mountains.
