From the parking lot, you can take either of two parallel trails as shown on the trail map above.  The one on the right is the actual trail marked as Chamisa Trail 183, while the trail head to the left of the parking area heads up a valley. Both converge on the same area. The trail along the valley is much easier, and eventually leads up a steep grade to the same point where the more difficult Chamisa Trail 183 leads as well. Beware that there area several "forks" and none of the trails are marked. Our graphic shows where we made a "wrong turn" after heading back from the overlook.  Note that this path does not lead back to the road, although it appears that it might in this graphic.  Either mark each fork taken or use GPS track back capability to reduce the risk of getting lost.
