“An alternate route near the base of the Winsor Trail that connects with other trails to the south.”
— Phil Lucero
This is an alternate route to take on the Winsor Trail
that stretches along the south end of Tesuque creek. If you are descending, it breaks away from the main trail just before a river crossing. The first stretch is fairly easy and the trail looks more like a jeep road in some sections. Soon you'll get to a dramatic technical descent that puts you at the base of the Burn Trail #399
. If you keep going you'll meet up with the Carol Trail
just before you cross back to the north side of the creek.
