Overview

This is a challenging ride. You have to be self contained or have a sag. There is cell signal along the way. Be sure to have plenty of water. This is a remote ride. Help is far away.

Need to Know

There are no restrooms or water stops along the way. It is a remote area on the west side of the Rio Grande Gorge. Restroom at John Dunn Recreation Area. You are on your own at the Lobatos Bridge.

Description

Start on the west side of the Rio Grande. From the Lobatos Bridge, head south. You'll go between the Rio Grande and the hill. The road is shown on the map as undeveloped road. I would not try it in a car. The climb is short and steep. Most people walk up and down. It is no more than 200 yards.

The road is sand, head west as it winds around. You'll come to a gate. Road F is a Colorado County road. Go south. There is a BLM sign at about 12 miles into the ride at the state line, continue south. There is a jog to the east you can continue south, it's shorter. There are BLM markers knocked down along the way.

You'll reach a road off to the east to Chiflo, from there it's 18 more miles. Then the power line and it's 14 miles. You'll come to two trees, one on either side of the road. I call them gate keepers marking 10 more miles. You'll know them when you see them.
