Sunset Recreation parking area for A-Mountain to temporary close

The Sunset Recreation Site Parking lot and access road will be closed from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 23, until Friday, June 2. The parking lot and access road will be open after 5 p.m. and during Memorial Day weekend, three days. The public needs to be very careful with use in that parking lot because it will not have the pipe guardrail for a parking barrier.

The Las Cruces District Bureau of Land Management will be conducting maintenance of the access road and pipe guardrail on the Sunset Recreation Site. During this time, there will be heavy equipment operations, removal and welding of the pipe guardrail. For safety to our public, the site will be closed during work hours.

A-Mountain proper and hiking trails on A-Mountain will remain open for public use and can be accessed via the Monte Vista Recreation Site situated on the east side of A-Mountain, which is .2 miles east of Sunset Recreation Site.
