Dome Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The multi-use Dome Trail, a 4-mile roller-coaster spur off the Contrabando Trail network, rides roughshod over a cinnabar prospect mining region known as the Contrabando Dome. The Dome Trail sports a serpentine network of sandy arroyos, stony jeep tracks, and bright yellow humps and hilltops that interlace a cactiblooming cross-section of Chihuahuan Desert low country.

Along the way, hikers, bikers, and equestrians benefit from colorful orientation kiosks and interpretive signs that provide lessons in the area’s history of mining, smuggling, and ranching. Add stunning views of the surrounding sierras at every turn plus skill-challenging single-track for mountain biking enthusiasts, and it would appear that trail enthusiasts have struck gold; or, more apropos for this mining country, quicksilver!"
