Trail Overview

Cany is a road-width braided trail in the Sante Fe National Forest north of the town of Los Alamos. It's a short trail, 0.9 miles, that connects FS Roads 446 and 445. The trail is mainly a road but has small bits of single track that pop on and off of the road at times. It's all extremely easy and flat, through a grassy high desert terrain, with no obstacles. There are a couple of ruts in the trail to watch out for and very small embedded rocks in spots. It parallels Road 445 the whole time, then drops down to it at the end.

Access Description

The OHV system north of the town of Los Alamos, New Mexico, is a completely unmarked and loosely maintained riding area made up of several intermediate single tracks connected by rocky and sandy jeep roads. Riding this area is essentially impossible without a GPS map, as the trails are very faint and unmarked, and will require extensive route finding. This area is best in fall and spring, as summer can be pretty hot here. The trails are a fun and unique mix of desert and pine forest with some intermediate challenges. Although there is no official staging area for these trails, there are a few hiking trailheads and dirt pull-offs along Rendija Road that can work as a staging area to ride these trails. From Rendija Road, take Maria's Canyon (FS 416), which has lots of deep ruts and rocks.
