TWA Flight 260 crashed February 19, 1955. Unfortunately all 13 passengers and 3 crew members did not survive.

We will enter TWA Canyon via Elena Gallegos Open Space. There is an $2 fee on weekends to enter Elena Gallegos Open Space. Immediately turn left after entrance to reach Cottonwood Springs Trail Head and parking area.


The hike is about 7 miles round trip.


Take Trail 230A from the parking lot, which will leadto Trail 230, then Trail 230 will leadto the gate where the Domingo Baca Trail Head is located.

There are ruins of a rock dwelling.


After about 1/4 mile from dwelling take right fork up the rocky south embankment, avoid the left fork.

The crash site is about 2 miles from this point. There is some climbing the last mile or so.


About 1/4 mile from the crash site there is a very large boulder to climb to reach the site.
