From the town of Red River, feel free to bike up NM 578 for 6 miles to FR 487 and the start of the mileage for this ride.The road is paved and climbs a thousand feet to the start of FR 487.This will add another 12 miles to your ride. From the intersection of NM 578 and Middle Fork Lake Road (FR 487), go right onto FR 487 and begin to climb gently along the Middle Fork River to the left. Ride past some beaver dams near the start of the road and tall stands of thick willows on the left.Travel through a wet area and climb on rocky tread past some nice camping spots along the Middle Fork on the left. Reach a parking area, bathrooms, and campsites at the 1-mile mark. Steep riding along the Middle Fork through dense pine forests. Trail surface: Rough doubletrack roads. Climb past the first of several switchbacks on somewhat smooth tread through a dense pine forest with the Middle Fork on your right. The switchbacks are rutted out from four-wheel traffic and are hard to clean on your first go. I found going wide to the left helped a lot and made negotiating the switchbacks much easier.
