I finally managed to get my wife off the back of my bike and onto her own. Would generally like to know about good DS rides for a new rider who is trying to build skills and confidence.
Monticello canyon runs for about 12 miles northeast from the small town of Monticello which is about 30 miles NE of TorC. There is an exit for it off of I-25 maybe 15 miles north of TorC.

The ride is a primitive road with dozens of water crossings, some as much as a foot deep. It goes thru several miles of a spectacular box canon.
