Trail Overview

This is a very scenic route around the North side of the Valles Caldera. It goes from the Jemez Mountains over to Espanola and is a great full-day loop with plenty of exploring to be done along the way. Excellent camping and diverse forests make this a great showcase for New Mexican off-roading.

Difficulty

The vast majority of this trail is easily doable in any vehicle with moderate ground clearance. There is one section towards the middle of the trip that is steep and rocky, but not unmanageable. The trail can become difficult when wet, and very slippery when snow covered.
