NOTES: East of Silver City, the Sawmill Wagon Road National Recreation Trail (#243) is a 10 mile horseback riding route from Arenas Valley Trailhead To Junction of Trail 74 with elevations from 6,500 feet to 8,000.

Currently, the trail is used by hikers, bikers, and equestrians wanting a quick and historic day of exploring.

To reach the horseback riding trailhead from Silver City travel east on US Hwy. 180 approximately 4 miles to the Arenas Valley Road. Travel the Arenas Valley Road 1.5 miles north. The trailhead is at the end of the road.
