Longest Yard Sale In New Mexico To Draw Bargain Shoppers And Leaf Peepers Oct. 21-22

JEMEZ SPRINGS — The Jemez Mountain Trail Sale will draw more than 150 vendors and leaf peepers to the Jemez Valley 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Oct. 21-22 to sell and buy new and used items and enjoy priceless views of the changing fall colors along the Jemez Mountain Trail Scenic Byway (N.M. 4).

The 14th annual Jemez Mountain Trail Sale – the longest yard sale in New Mexico – begins at San Ysidro near the intersection of N.M. 550 and N.M. 4 and continues 12 miles past Jemez Springs to La Cueva. The sale covers more than 30 miles.

Off N.M. 4, the sale continues along Ponderosa Road, Highway 485 (near Gilman Tunnels), Vista Hermosa Road and Thompson Ridge. A map of all “cluster” locations is available on Facebook at: JemezMountainTrailSale. There is no charge to set up a table at a cluster location.

Sellers are asked to register in advance with cluster contacts. For contact information and details, email joybandy@gmail.com. Items for sale range from pueblo pottery and jewelry to books, appliances and much more.

The Trail Sale is also a great fundraising opportunity for nonprofit organizations. Drivers must obey speed limits and watch for sightseers and pedestrians along N.M. 4. As a reminder, it is illegal to set up along highway right of ways, Forest Service property, fishing accesses and private property, without the owner’s permission.

Visitors to the event can expect to see roads lined with yellow daisies, golden snakeweed, and orange and gold-hued Cottonwood trees trailing the Jemez River with the backdrop of the rust colored Jemez Mountains. Last year, the Trail Sale drew more than 150 sellers and continues to grow annually.
