Too much early season snow in Colorado so I headed south...Looking for the "quintessential" Taos area trail and stopped by Gearing Up in Taos. Rey there recommended this trail. HIGHLY recommend them as they gave us an EXCELLENT map with this trail on it. They have other maps as well that they have put together themselves. This is a tough grunt uphill to the South Boundary trail. Mostly a fire road. Then it's South Boundary for four miles of awesome single track and back onto the Mondragon, again a road. I am usually a single track snob, but this was a great ride. It was a holiday (Columbus Day) and we hardly saw a soul. It's about 19 miles total. The aspens were spectacular.

Well, check the above mentioned map. I liked going up and then down. THe description says it's all downhill, but that's not really the case as the Mondragon from South Boundary back is quite rolling....

Forest road, in tree cover with excellent views of Taos Canyon. There are a few fallen trees, but this is continuous for the most part.

Customer Service

The trail can be used to link a host of options, or as an out-and-back with a fun SBT loop on the end. You could climb the Momdragon, and when you come to the intersection a few miles, take a left turn, and climb to an eastern section of the South Boundary Trail (SBT) right near Don Fernando Peak. Hook up on the SBT for a single track descent to the Mondragon Intersection a few miles down, then take a gentle 8-mile descent back to US 64. Or you could also continue onto the end of SBT and ride back US 64 to your car. We also use this trail to connect the South Boundary Trail (SBT) to the North Boundary Trail (NBT) and call it the Dounble Boundary Trail (DBT)
