This ride takes you into the scenic and historic Picuris Mountains. About 2 miles from the start of this ride you will cross the historic Camino Real, or “Royal Highway,” that served as the original highway to Taos for traders, settlers, and Native Americans traveling north and south for several hundred years. In late spring through fall this ride is free of snow and dry. It can be pretty beastly pushing up this mountain in the middle of summer. Plan on riding early or late in the day to avoid the heat. Don’t get caught up here during one of those hellacious summer thunder- and lightning storms. You are exposed and there is no shelter to be found. If you see threatening-looking thunderclouds approaching, you would be wise to beat a hasty retreat off this mountain.
