Update

A nice, tough, and relatively unknown trail that was born out of horseback rides from Bishop's Lodge.

Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

This much lesser traveled trail parallels the Burn Trail #399 for a good stretch before veering off in its own direction. Like the Burn Trail #399, it connects the Winsor Trail with the Little Tesuque Creek Trail.

If going south from the Winsor Trail, this trail starts with a burly climb up singletrack that cuts through a pine and juniper forest. The climb is long and unrelenting. There seems to be a few false summits before you finally get to the top. You know the climb is done when you hit the Santa Fe National Forest fence line.

From here, you can climb along the fence to the Burn Trail #399 or you can continue on the Carol Trail down to the Little Tesuque Creek Trail. There are also some smaller loops to the west that are primarily used for horseback riding. With that said, do give horses the right of way and ask their riders how to best proceed.
