From Sitting Bull Falls Recreation Area (fee required) consider hiking a 4.7 mile loop trail by including T214. T214 is connected at both ends with T68 at 2.1 and 9 miles from the Recreation Area.
For a one-way, downhill hike; leave a car at the Last Chance Trailhead (fee required) then drive to the top of the District to access T68 from NM137. There is a sign at the beginning of the trail at NM137. Drive .6 miles just past some corrals in your vehicle or start from NM137 for a 3.6 mile hike to Sitting Bull Falls Recreation Area.
Cool off in the wading pools on top of the falls before heading to your car about .5 miles further to Last Chance Trailhead. There are scenic overlooks of canyons and plains along the way. This trail is well marked.
