Trail Overview

This trail is a well-maintained forest road that leads from US 64 to some logging trails along the border of the Taos Pueblo. The road is closed near the logging trails as its condition deteriorates and has many dispersed camping sites along the length of it. Use caution for wetlands near the creek, and certain camping areas are closed to motor vehicles to prevent damage to the creek drainage.
