At nearly 900,000 acres the Magdalena Ranger District is the largest of four mountain Districts and four grasslands administered by the Cibola National Forest.
The District itself is composed of four separate and distinct mountain ranges in southwest New Mexico covering the three counties of Socorro, Catron, and Sierra. The ranges include the Datils, Bears, San Mateos and Magdalena Mountains. From the peak of South Baldy at 10,700 dropping in elevation to under 6000 feet in the southern portion of the San Mateos, varied topography and ecosystems can be found on the district.
