About Tres Pistolas Canyon
Three Gun Trailhead gives access to the Three Gun Spring/Tres Pistoles Trail 194. It is 4.0 miles long and ends at Embudito Trail 192. Hawk Watch Trail 215 splits off toward the east, from Three Gun Trail, about 0.5 miles into your hike.

Drive east on I-40 and take the Carnuel exit. Drive 1.5 miles east on Old Route 66. There is a brown sign marking the turnoff from Route 66 into the Monticello subdivision. Turn into the subdivision and follow Monticello Drive to Alegre Drive Northeast. Turn left, and follow the road until you can turn right at the intersection of Alegre and Sempre Verde. Follow signs to the Three Gun Spring/Tres Pistoles Trailhead parking area.
