Posting this up to get some feedback from local experts on some of the work arounds I had to do on the GSDR! If you have some further info, or suggestions on alternative routes, or how to get through some of these areas would be great! So made the GSDR route from a combination of tracks provided by others, CDT tracks, and those I drew myself. So, of course its a work in progress, and subject to variations! Half the fun is exploring to see where these tracks go, and along the way we found several obstacles. On the loop to Pie Town, we got derailed, as a small FR off of the main FR was impassible due to downed trees. We had to bail out and find Old Highway 52 to Datil. This turned out for better, since we lost time the day before to repairs, and managed to roll into Datil just in time to snag dinner and a room. As we headed north, I drew tracks across national forest that would dump us out on Highway 54. But, no luck as the track petered out at locked gates. On my GPS I could see the road continuing, through the forest, but clearly the gates were locked. Also, county maintenance ends signs were a pointer also. So, we took the northern route up, and cut across to 54. Along the way I spotted old 54 on the GPS but this was all-private and we had to take the paved road. When we hit Taos, I wanted to cut across forest roads towards Angel Fire and White Peak. But the track I drew landed us at a huge locked gate to the road, which goes up to a water tower. We bailed and took 64 north to Angel Fire, which was fine because it was a great ride, and White Peak would later kick our butt! [ Doing this again, I would drop our gear at the camp ground just outside White Peak, and spend a full day noodling around in White Peak without gear. Finally, a small side loop I drew going up forest road turned into locked gates again, as we went off the forest. But was not always clear we were on private land. We were not able to take the southern route and had to ride into Roswell (ugg), and make good and sure you have plenty of fuel, because your heading into no-mans land after Hope!
