Need to Know
Obviously an arroyo—avoid during a storm when flash floods can run.
Most of this route follows a sandy wash into the high desert and links up near the top of the Lemitas Trail #405
. The arroyo continues farther up into the mountains but becomes less defined beyond there. Conventional tires will get bogged down in the sand, so fat bikes are the way to go here.
Start at the Lemitas Trail #405
trailhead and ride out Forest Road 34
to 34B and continue on an ATV trail up and over a small hill, then parallel to Highway 84. After about 0.75 miles, you'll reach the arroyo—follow it up to the west on an adventurous climb. Lots of options and natural features to explore on the sides, a few alternate routes where old ATV and horse trails leave and reenter the arroyo. One of these, at about mile 3.8, leads directly to the Window Rock Spur
