This was a great way for a couple of Kansas flatlanders to get started on a week in Taos. Despite the being only our second day at the 7,000-foot elevation, we managed a nice ride of 7 miles. By the end of the week, we did a 14-mile ride, and even saw three bighorn sheep ewes, each with a lamb at our turnaround point. The trail has very little elevation change, but there are a number of rocky sections that beginners might want to walk.
