Overflow Accomodations: Grey Feathers Lodge
Grey Feathers Lodge is 5 miles west of Spirit Canyon Lodge, at the junction of Highways 15 and 35. Detailed directions to the lodge can be found at http://www.greyfeathers.com/directions.htm, and the phone number is (505) 536-3206.
The Mapquest driving directions from Albuquerque, NM to State Hwy 15 & State Hwy 35 (I-25 to Hwy 152 at Hillsboro, to Hwy 35 at San Lorenzo) gives the estimated driving time as 4-1/4 hours from Albuquerque to the Lodges.
Note the above route is not recommended in bad weather. In bad weather, from I-25 take the Deming cutoff (Hwy 26) at Hatch, then Hwy 180 at Deming, then Hwy 15 at Silver City, with an estimated 5-1/2 hours driving time from Albuquerque to the Lodges. (Link to pdf file with bad weather route)
