Holy Ghost Canyon to close for summer

Pecos wilderness

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – One of northern New Mexico’s popular recreation sites is closing for the summer.

Holy Ghost Canyon, including forest road 122, the Summer Tract Home area and campground, and the Holy Ghost Trail and group campsite, will close on Saturday and won’t reopen until September 30th.

The closure stems from last year’s Tres Lagunas fire.

A rehab team recommended that the area remain closed during the rainy season for the next few years.

The canyon is located north of Pecos in Santa Fe National Forest.
