U-Trail is 11 miles north of Glenwood on Hwy. 180. Traveling north, turn right (east) 1/2 mile past mile marker 41 — just before a bridge. Traveling south, turn left (east) just 1/2 mile past mile maker 40 — just after the bridge. Follow U-Trail signs to Wild Horse Mesa, just a short distance to the mesa top. We're at mile marker 40 1/2.

Glenwood is a great place to relax, take in spectacular scenery, enjoy a meal, visit gift shops, and meet friendly, folksy locals. Plenty of history here too. Billy the Kid and the Wild Bunch resided in these parts, as did the Apaches. Visit the old grave site of Cooney — the Calvary officer who started the mining town of Cooney. Geronimo was born just to the east of Glenwood on the headwaters of the Gila.
