 The beginning of this trail got me PUMPED! It starts with cool single track climbing with mixed rock tech...and then it quickly turned into a weird experience. The next 95% of the trail is a mix of single and double track that wanders with OK signage, through super loose and relatively uninteresting terrain. The trail was not even marked on the kiosk at the trailhead. This was confusing, but we luckily were chatted up by someone who had just done the trail. We ended up pedaling it from N to S and instead of reversing it (which is recommended), we dropped down to the road (which is easy to do at the end) and pedaled road back. I hate pedaling road, but it was better than reversing that trail.

 This is New Mexico, do not expect a lot of signage.

 Watch out for loose dogs in Talpa, they will chase you.
