Breathtaking scenery and an epic challenge await those who brave this long, grueling trail. The trail traverses through the Carson National Forest with relentless climbing and seems to go on forever. The turnaround point is 22 miles from the trailhead. Lookout for hikers in the first few miles of the ride.
How to get there:
From Taos, go East on HWY 64 for 5 miles to the El Nogal Picnic Area. This is where the trial begins.
