Overview

Closed when muddy. Access to the Río Grande del Norte National Monument is $3/day per vehicle.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

The first part is fast and basically easy. At the tree line, the trail becomes more difficult due to rocks, grade, and twists.

At the fork, it is more intermediate climbing on the north side of the loop. The south side of the loop trail is steeper and there are several large rocks to wiggle between so it is more difficult. There are two overlooks on the loop. Use the Punto de Coyote Vista Point Spur to access the upper overlook. Look for the bench at the overlook for views over Questa.

The distance from the East Trailhead to the West Trailhead is 6.45 miles on the overlapping Las Vistas de Questa Trail. It is about 80% singletrack. The trail is mostly green (easy), but there are some parts that people walk but never more than 200 feet total.

Overall, it is easy to find. Watch for the brown sign about two miles north of Questa for Vistas de Questa. It is a part of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument (Wild Rivers).
