Trail Overview

Forest Service road that climbs a wide loose and rutted road. There are many shallow ruts and a few deep ruts that must be navigated around if clearance is an issue. There is a very steep descent about 2.5 miles past the Santa Fe National Forest signs or about 0.25 miles past the rough parking lot. This descent leads you into a valley where the trail changes to a grass-covered and slightly muddy doubletrack. The end of this trail ends at the watershed boundary and is therefore an out-and-back. There are numerous single-track mountain bike trails off the sides of this trail, there are also numerous short pullouts that are mostly a dead end.
