Trail has been closed off at property-line fence with the Sandia Pueblo. Maybe our community can work with the Pueblo to regain access to this and other trails, but if we trespass (by squeezing through the fence), we just end up looking pretty bad.

Description

Mostly easy riding near the Placitas area neighborhoods. Recent erosion in summer 2013 has made the descents and ascents of the arroyos more challenging and fun for intermediates. Beginners may want to walk these sections.
