This graded road runs along Black Creek Valley, parallel to paved Indian Road 12. It is a well-used road because it accesses several houses. The valley is wide and shallow, and the meandering, often dry Black Creek is to the east. The Chuska Mountains are to the east of the valley, just across the state line in New Mexico. The trail ends on Indian Road 12 a short distance into New Mexico, at the entrance to Red Lake, a popular fishing and camping place. Special Attractions: Easy trail running along a wide, scenic valley; Camping and fishing at Red Lake. This trail is graded dirt but suitable for a normal passenger vehicle. It usually has gentle grades, is fairly wide, and has very shallow water crossings (if any).
