To reach cemetery coming south from Taos or Tres Ritos, at the junction of 518 and State Road 75 (Rock Wall), head west on 75, toward Placita, Vadito, and Penasco. Travel about 1 mile and then turn right onto a dirt road leading to the cemetery. From Penasco: about 1 mile before the junction of 518 and State Road 75, take a left onto a dirt road leading to the cemetery. There are no signs to the cemetery and it can not be seen from the highway.

I have found no history of this cemetery, as to when it was established and who cares for it. It is in fair condition.

Gloria Gonzales and I walked and read this cemetery in June of 2005. This includes all existing and legible markers or headstones.
