West Rim Trail

Home  >>  West Rim Trail

A 9-mile trail (one-way), primarily doubletrack jeep road, that follows the Rio Grande Gorge south along its rim. There are a few rocky sections near the northern trailhead to negotiate. And there are a few short sections of singletrack if you look around. Expect awesome views of the gorge and the Sangre de Christo mountain range. This is an amazing spot for sunsets and big horn sheep viewing. This is an out-and-back type of ride. Parking can be found at the north end by the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge Trailhead or at the south end near the turnoff to Pilar. Rest rooms are located at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge Trailhead only.
