Trail Overview

This scenic route drives through the eastern edge of Valle San Antonio, before going through a ravine and opening into the wide open spaces of Valle Toledo. It is the primary access route for many of the backcountry hiking routes on the eastern side of Valles Caldera. Attractions in the area include many nice fishing spots, as well as long vistas of Valles Caldera. Note that this road is only accessible via Valle Grande Edge route, which requires a backcountry access pass from the National Park Service.

Difficulty

Like most roads in Valles Caldera, this road is maintained by NPS. There is one spot where you cross a drainage ditch that has a few small rocks instead of a graded dirt road. This should still be accessible to most SUVs, just take it slow in less well equipped vehicles.
