Description

From the junction with Gascon Trail 239, the Skyline Trail continues south through a large grassland on the eastern divide. There is a cairned route along the east side of Cebolla Mountain as well as a trail on the west side. The most important thing is to continue south of the ridgeline. There is no visible tread in the grasslands. In many places the trail is obscure and there are multiple cairned or blazed routes. It is not necessary to cross the quartsize fields. Look for routes around them.

Approximately six miles south of the Gascon Trail junction is the junction with Rociada Trail 250. The trail maintains its southerly direction, alternating between forest and meadows. After two more miles, the trail intersects Los Esteros Trail 226 and after about five miles it intersects Porvenir Canyon Trail 247. The 1.5 miles of trail from here to Elk Mountain recieve much more use than the portions of trail to the north. The trail leaves the Pecos Wilderness just before arriving at Forest Road 646.
