Bonanza - 9/9/03 version
The Bonanza Area is southwest of Poncha Springs and includes the old mining town of Bonanza and many, many mines. The area is easily accessed via 4WD roads. The Saguache Ranger District of the Rio Grande NF has produced a nice brochure showing marked routes in the area. You can pick up a copy of the brochure at the Saguache RD office, which is on Highway 114 one mile west of Saguache. Or, you can download and print the pdf files on your own printer, although you will probably not be able to print them in the large format that the USFS distributes.
