There is more to this trail than the description suggests. While it appears the section between the Winsor and Aspen Ranch is closed because of the Peublo grazing area, you can pick the Borrego trail up again at Aspen Ranch or even FR 412 off of Pacheco Canyon Road. To do this, you would take Borrego to Winsor and descend to FR 412 on either Pacheco Canyon Road or Rio en Medio. At the Ranch, on the west side of the road, accross from the parking lot, the Borrego Trail picks up again. (Actually not totally correct, because there is a rough section of the Borrego between Pachecho Canyon Road and the Aspen P-lot, but it is only rideable down toward Pacheco Canyon).

So if you picked up the Borrego Trail at Aspen Ranch, you could continue north and climb, then descent to the intersection of the Rio en Medio (lower portion). From here you can continue on the borrego and climb to the Dirt Road, then take a left and climb until you pick up the Borrego again. From here you would descend to Nambe Creek. Trail is in excellent shape and there are now a million water bars or so on the Nambe descent, but the trail is clear. You only exit out of here, though is to climb up 179 over to the end of Rio en Medio and come out at Chupadero and ride the road back into town or climb back up Pacheco Canyon. Only for fit and strong riders....(sorry).

This makes a short loop. The ride is great. I would recomment practicing technical skills for this ride.

Customer Service

Follow directions previously listed. Also, can take the left fork, hit the Winsor trail temporarily and come back on the upper fork.

Definate preference to the left fork version, Bear Wallow is a gas. Watch out for hikers (as with any trail that connects the Winsor). Speed comes easy, trail closures and endogs (picture it, it will come)
are hard. No joke, folks, this trail can be a mob scene on the weekends in summer.
Weekdays in spring or fall, even in mild winters, are the bomb; early mornings are usually vacant, evening a better chance of company.

Similar Products Used: Take either fork, but go left down Winsor to Chamisa. Or, park at the Chamisa trailhead (a few miles before this one), ride up to Borrego, take a right and climb up to the fork previously mentioned, right down Bear Wallow, and right back to Chamisa.
