Summer and fall the road is open to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, but is also open to vehicles. Expect to see motorized traffic. When it is closed for the winter it is a quiet place to cross-country ski or snowshoe. source: fs.usda.gov

    A really fun trail. Hidden, and appears to not be ridden very often. A blend of climbs and descents with rocks and the normal New Mexico terrain.
