Description

Capulin Trail is doubletrack with the joy of being narrow enough to feel like singletrack but wide enough to allow your eyes to wonder at the endless beauty. Big uphill and big downhill make this trail a great way to get a tough workout and major thrills while enjoying the high country near Taos.

Near the top of Capulin Loop. This doubletrack is typical of the whole loop.

Taking a quick water break on our way up to the top. Beautiful tall aspens & nice grassy meadows.
