Rift Valley Trail
The views start right from the county road 110 Trailhead parking lot (aka The Slide Trail parking lot) overlooking the Rio Pueblo and follow along the river high on the mesa, as the river eventually meets up with the Rio Grande.
The Rift Valley Trail is a fun 10-12 mile loop of mostly singletrack riding around the perimeter of the Taos Valley Overlook trail network. Keep your eyes peeled; big horn sheep sightings are common along the Rio Grande.
Loads of camping options are nearby along the Rio Grande in Pilar!
