While I have listed this trail as Off-road, it can be used for hiking, bird-watching, horseback riding, or trail running. The terrain is a sandy wash as it closely follows the Rio del Oso, but as it climbs it turns to rocky areas. The road bed can be very deep sand, so be sure to have a winch handy. This trail is listed as being in Abiquiu, but it is not. This trail is just off hwy 84 about 2 miles north of the intersection of hwys 84 and 285. San Lorenzo is an old abandonded encampment. It was once a thriving multi-family village. The road originated as a trail between villages, then became a horse-drawn wagon road, a finally a jeep road. The trail has been in existence for 400 years. Lots of history here.
