Trail Description
About this trail
This trail follows a moderately steep drainage for approximately 1/4 mile, it will then make a sharp right hand turn and follow an old forest road which traverses several large drainages. These drainages provide a unique opportunity to travel from the high desert pinon/juniper woodland into the ponderosa/oak forest and then back out to the pinon/juniper. Wild flowers are continuously blooming along the trail from spring through fall. Spectacular views of Jicarita Peak can be seen at certain spots - especially traveling south.

The Rio Grande del Rancho Trail is a great place to hone mountain biking skills before attempting some of the more difficult trails in the Taos area. source:
