Beginning at the Winsor Trail, Lower Big Tesuque trail is a bi-directional multi-use trail that connects the Upper Big Tesuque Trail and the Winsor Trail. It is a moderate climb with only a couple of short rocky sections to keep you honest, but is doable if you are in good aerobic shape. Descending, the trail is fast,fun, and flowy. Keeping speed in check would generally be wise, as the trail is popular with hikers, but less popular than the Winsor. Descending, the trail is not technical, making this a decent intermediate option in the area. Many people will connect the Big Tesuque trail with the Winsor for a long, fast descent.
