North Boundary Trail 495

Area Status: Open
This area is Open


From Taos – Follow US Highway 64 to Forest Road 10 (Capulin Canyon), just west of Shady Brook.  The trailhead is 1.3 miles up F.R. 10 on the right.

Attractions and Consideration:

At mile 9.3 the North Boundary Trail meets Devisadero Loop Trail 108.  You can follow either fork to the Devisadero trailhead at El Nogal campground on Highway 64.  The right fork is easier on a mountain bike and provides nice views of the Taos valley to the north.

Recommended Season:

Summer and fall for hiking, biking and horseback, and winter and early spring for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
