There are places bikes cannot go. Legally. I abide by those laws. In these wilderness designated locations we walk. Here are some photos of a recent walk up Wheeler Peak in the Carson National Forest of Northern New Mexico. This hike is at just outside of Taos Ski Valley. The summit is 13,160 feet above sea level and is the highest point in New Mexico. The trail is about 10 1/2 miles round trip and a vertical climb of 3365. It took 4:22 to do it round trip. Its a very special place....

I am less backpacker and more runner. The GF and I do a lot of trails you can't bike as well.

If you want to feel insufficient, a friend of mine just set an FKT up San Gorgonio in SoCal (highest point in Southern California). Ran from 6000' to 11'000. His run was flagged as being a vehicle :ROFLMAO:

9 miles and 5500' of gain on the way up. Then he turned around and ran faster back down.
