High Point

High in the alpine forest, outside of Taos, NM, lies a stretch of singletrack known as Heaven on Earth. This is the perfect ride if you don't want to shuttle the South Boundary Trail. Leave the car at Garcia Park, and ride towards Osha Peak. After 6 miles, take in the view at the top of the meadow. Heading back it will all make sense, why this place is known as Heaven on Earth.
