Description

The Trader's Trail is an old route leading from the Taos Valley Overlook Trail System's southeast trailhead along Hwy 68 to the far north end of the Rift Valley Trail, just above the confluence of the Rio Grande and Rio Pueblo gorges. This is one of the easiest trails in Taos, and is perfect for beginners or anyone transitioning from pavement to dirt.
