Every place in this state has at least 3 names and this road is no exeption. Called North Star Rd by some and Military Rd on some maps, Forest Road 150 bisects the immense Gila National Forest for over 50 miles heading north/south. Homeland of the Chiricahua Apache, the Gila is still wild and rugged and incredibly beautiful. The road is fine for most high clearance vehicles, including Subaru type SUVs but can become impassable during monsoon season and in winter. The highest peaks reach to just over 10,000 feet and the steep canyons shelter wildlife and form the Gila and Mimbres Rivers. In summer, the high mountain meadows are cool and a great escape from the desert heat below. In winter, the foothills and surrounding desert offer warmth and remoteness. The Gila National Forest contains over 2 million acres with two wilderness areas where only foot and horse traffic are allowed. The surrounding desert and foothills are full of BLM land and there are endless camping and exploring possibilities. Why leave paradise?
