DESERT SAFETY


Estancia is a desert terrain in which visitors should be aware of unique characteristics of this area to keep safe and make their time enjoyable. Estancia is located at an elevation of 6100 feet. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own water bottles to stay well-hydrated.


If you walk on the grassy part of the grounds, please note that the terrain is very uneven with many divots and low lying cactus. Use proper shoes that provide stability and protection for the feet.


Please do not smudge in the grassy areas as the terrain is dry and vulnerable to catching fire.

Enjoy your visit.
