It`s at Sipapu, but things fill up fast. Taos is 25 minutes away. If your bringing the better half, wondering thru Taos might be just the ticket.
Staying at Sipapu is on the rustic side, more pleasures in the valley!

no linky but here are the locations:

6/15 & 6/16: New York: Dave Reed's place near Cayuta NY
6/22 & 6/23: Vermont: Carmen Brook farm and dairy near Highgate VT
7/27 & 7/28: Arizona: Kingman AZ at a state park or BLM or some gov't type land
8/3 & 8/4: New Mexico: Sipapu Ski Resort (some lodging there) near Taos NM
8/24 & 8/25: Minnesota: Spirit Mtn in Duluth MN (trial is same weekend as Aerostich's 30th anniversary rally)

of course, these are trial sites so "near" a town is sometimes a relative term

cheers

The Arizona round is at Hualapai Peak County Park, twenty miles or so southeast of and about a mile higher than Kingman. Paved access off
I-40; camping, cabins, some facilities.










And it gets bigger. A National should be awesome.

Very cool place, rugged steep mountains. Camped there one night, got woke up by a herd of raccoon-sized critters scuffling around.

It does look like a great place to ride! Rocks look like Beavertown.

That looks like Mike Mclanahan`s back yard when he lived in Los Alamos. Sorry you guys missed out!! Famous rocks like El Grande or one some will remember `bannana peel`behind the cemetary. Way too smooth of rock for BT.

Oh I remember this very well. I was walking it and saying WTF, this can't really be taking points.

Urgent: Help prevent trail closures in the Carson! (x-post)

X-post.

This is more dual sport than trials but we *are* asking for trials areas! And I know lots of NMTA folks also ride dual sport too so please help!

The Carson National Forest, Camino Real Ranger District (south and east-ish of Taos NM neighborhood) has released (very quietly during the holidays) a “Preliminary Environmental Assessment…” that essentially closes all trails and roads in the entire district unless they already have a Forest Service designated number. This means closure of hundreds of miles of undocumented trails to motorized use.

Here's a map of the Camino Real district.


As I'm sure we all know, trails aren't documented because the area used to be "open unless marked closed" so nobody worried about marking a route as a trail but now FS is going "closed unless marked open".

If you have or know anyone who has GPS trail files for ANY trails within this area that you or they don’t want closed, can you please either post in my thread over on the "GPS Tracks Rockies" subforum (linky here) or email directly to Mark Werkmeister for NMOHVA mark.r.werkmeister@intel.com.

Or if you have an ancient 1986 FS map with the cover like this below, can you possibly scan it? Or let me know that you have it and I'll see what else might work.


NMOHVA is thankfully stepping in with their experience on these matters and I'll be forwarding the track files and map (if available) to them.

Comments to the FS are due January 12th so PLEASE post your tracks right away.

Thank you so much for your help!
