Drive up to the Pajarito Ski hill. When you reach the parking lot, you may park here and walk the rest of the way, or continue to drive on the small dirt road heading west out of the parking lot. Follow this bumpy road about 1/4 mile uphill. You will notice a small parking area and bathroom on your right. Park here to begin your exploration of Camp May!
The picnic shelter on the south side of the road includes a fireplace that was originally part of the Camp May Cabin built by the Los Alamos Ranch School in 1922-1923. Ranch School students rode their horses up a steep trail to this base camp for weekend camping and hunting trips.
