Marker Description: SHUREE PONDS

Smack dab in the middle of the Valle Vidal are the Shuree Ponds, off of Forest Service Rd. 1950. Only two ponds hold trout - which are readily marked. The smaller is designated as a kids' pond for kids 12 and under and is easily fished from the banks. The main pond is approximately 5 acres in size. Float tubing this lake is a great way to work the deep areas in the middle. This lake is a popular fishing spot being minutes from the Cimarron Campground. The lake is stocked throughout the summer with 12-16 rainbows and 16-20 inch rainbows are caught throughout the summer.

Getting there: From the east side; a sign marks the turnoff from US Highway 64, 4 miles north of Cimarron, NM. From the west side travel north of Taos on Highway 522, turn right on Highway 196 at the town of Costilla, this eventually turns into a rough dirt road and becomes Forest Service Rd 1950/1900 that parallels Rio Costilla.
