The Antelope Wells, New Mexico Port of Entry has the distinction of being the least-trafficked crossing on the US-Mexico border. It is also the only staffed US land border crossing that is not listed on the CBP web site as either a Port of Entry or a Station of another port; however, it has historically been considered a station of the Columbus New Mexico Port of Entry. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics combines Antelope Wells border crossing data with Columbus. In spite of its light traffic volume, the Army Corps of Engineers awarded a $12.4 million project to construct a new 5000 square foot border inspection station.
Antelope Wells Port of Entry Wikipedia
The Antelope Wells Port of Entry had served in the past as the southern terminus of the Continental Divide Trail; since the mid-1990s access to the divide at the US-Mexico border is restricted due to private ownership of the land by Diamond A Ranch. To avoid an extended road walk along Highway 81, the official beginning of the CDT is now at Crazy Cook, New Mexico northeast of Antelope Wells in the Big Hatchet Mountains.
