Trail Overview

This section of trail branches off from Mt. Taylor 4x4 Road and takes you up to the summit of Mt. Taylor. It is rugged and exposed, with not much cover if the weather rolls in. It is also very scenic, with vistas to the south and west across the New Mexican desert. As you get closer to the top, route finding becomes more difficult, but just follow the two-track. Please enjoy responsibly.

Difficulty

This trail becomes very steep as you climb towards the summit. There is a section early on with large rocks in the trail and trees very close to the sides, limiting line choice. An experienced driver with high clearance and low range will be fine.
