Northern New Mexico - Jemez - Taos area

I am looking for some cool off road rides in the Jemez Mtn area or Taos area. I am planning a trip to NM on August 11th or 12th. If anyone is interested in riding, I will be staying with my brother in Alb. We are looking for Forest Rd and Jeep Trails through Northern NM. If anyone is interested in riding, let me know. Any GPS tracks would be great

What bikes are you guys going to be riding? We've found some excellent forest roads in the area. Some are more adventurous than others.
Send me a PM-- we'll probably be around that weekend and can probably show you around.

I'm from near Taos and have taken my KLR extensively through there. Are you looking for? There's a few cool ridges and what not. If you email me, I could probably be more specific.

Didn't you make this post a couple weeks ago? I thought that we decided on meeting up for a ride? Have your plans changed?

I don't think that you will find GPS info on the Jemez and the Carson.

Your best bet would be to get forest service maps for both the Santa Fe and Carson.

Here is a weather link for the area.

Also you might contact Deano955i. He road through this area a couple weeks ago. His ride report suggests that he might have some comments to share.

We've ridden all over that area. There are jeep roads/fire roads everywhere. Get a good atlas and go for it. Ojo Caliente makes a good home base....hot springs, massages, and first rate meals (you said you were a GS guy)

I thought Ojo Caliente was a hot spot! Geronimo used to hangout there.

I just saw this updated post today. We never made the ride in August due to weather. We will be back in the spring though. I have a new ride now. The GS wasn't cutting it in the dirt. KTM 640 adventure is doing a much better job. I hope to meet you guys next spring or summer

Another way to go on maps is US forest service maps. They are available from the rangers offices and very detailed. We got a few when we went hunting up in the areas you are interested in and they had un-improoved roads and all on them. They saved us allot of greif trying to decide where to go and where we could turn around on the jeep trails.

Ojo

Def reccomend making Ojo your base. We did it last weekend and rode the singletrack and arrojo paths to El Rito had lunch rode around some more came back and "soaked our bones" for a whlie. Was a blast. Barely escaped a nasty little thunderstorm too. Was a great time.

I'm always looking for new singletrack near Santa Fe if anyone has any GPX files to share.

Where are the GPS routes for the old single track? I am in Pecos and I am not aware of any single track around Santa Fe.

Let me know man!

Thanks...
