This section of trail begins near the end of the FR 4079R
descent. There are several unmarked ATV paths in this area so follow the GPS points in this description closely, otherwise, you'll end up headed away from the highway and back toward North Star Mesa Road. Simply follow the path until it ends at a Forest Service Gate at highway 35. This is a nice option when riding the Rio Mimbres loop and you want to bypass some of the highway ride near the end of the adventure.
