Tijeras Cemetery is 10 miles from I-25 west bound on Highway 12 (Highway of Legends) on the north side of the highway. There are two Cemeteries; one you can see from from the highway on the north side on a hill (Tijeras #2). It is before you get to entrance of Tijeras #1. There is an old Church on the left (south side of highway). Go about ¼ mile and turn to the right up the hill and follow the dirt road back to the cemetery.
