Great Short trail just outside Santa Fe. took me about 2 hours with stopping for pics. When dry it's easy for any 4x4 and most high clearance 2wd should be able to make it. AT&T has phone service through out most of the trail, so it's a safer one to go alone.

Great view of the Rio Grande Valley rewards you at the end of the trail. A couple small washouts but nothing too difficult, took a 4WD Tacoma, used 2WD 95% of the time.

Awesome place to take your 4x4. I had a blast exploring the trail which you definitely have some options. The view was amazing from every aspect of the trail.
