About Nine Mile Picnic Site
The area is heavily wooded, with a mixture of level and hilly ground.

From Albuquerque, drive east on I-40 to Exit 175. Proceed north on NM-14 about 7 miles to NM-536. Turn left or west, onto NM-536 and drive about 9 miles up to the picnic site and look for signage on your left. It is easy to miss, as the gate is set back from the road. A landmark to help you is Capulin Picnic Site. Nine Mile Picnic Site is approximately a mile past Capulin, on the left.
