The Cibola National Forest is located in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma, and is part of the Southwestern Region.Like most of the National Forests located in the western states, the Cibola National Forest grew out of lands that originally were known as Forest Reserves. These reserves were first established in the late 1800s and early 1900s as a means of affording protection to natural resources, such as watersheds, trees, and soils.
The Cibola National Forest is comprised of 13 separate parcels of land scattered eastward from west central New Mexico into northeastern New Mexico, the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles and western Oklahoma. This includes four National Forest Districts totalling 1.6 million acres and two National Grassland Districts totalling 0.3 million acres.
The Mountainair Ranger District manages national forestland in Torrance, northwestern Lincoln, and eastern Valencia counties, which are in central New Mexico. Within the Mountainair District are the Gallinas Mountains and the Manzano Mountains. Congress designated the Manzano Wilderness in 1978. The Mount Taylor Ranger District manages land in northern Cibola, southern McKinley, and western Sandoval counties in western New Mexico. Mount Taylor and Zuni Mountains are within the Mount Taylor District.
The Cibola National Forest is a surprisingly diverse forest with a wide variety of history, recreational opportunities, topography, and potential fun. High meadows, secluded canyons, towering peaks, and open desert each offer different recreational opportunities for visitors to the Cibola National Forest. Come on and enjoy this Forest time and again.
