This route out of Pecos is one of two gateways to the central section of the Pecos Wilderness Area. This huge wilderness area covers 233,667 acres of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and includes the second highest mountain in the state, Truchas Peak (elevation 13,103 feet.). The dead-end road leaves town and follows the Pecos River into the beautiful high country of the Santa Fe National Forest. While we can’t cycle into the wilderness, New Mexico Route 63 offers a peek at the heavily forested ridges, broad mesas, lush meadows, and rugged mountains. There are great views of East Pecos Baldy, and you can choose several turn-around points depending on how much mileage and climbing you want to get in. Terrain: Rolling with gentle climbs to Terrero, some steep sections to Cowles, and a 700-foot gain in 2 miles to Jacks Creek.
