Robertson Pasture Trail

Area Status: Open

The Robertson Pasture Trail #020 is 6 miles long.  The south end of this trail is located at Forest Road #079 (North Creek) and the northern end is just beyond the east end of Foy Lake (Spring Lake) off of Forest Road #100 (Indian Creek). The southern portion of this trail covers very steep terrain going both up and down.  The northernmost end also covers rough, steep terrain.  The trail passes through the pine, fir and aspen forests of the Abajo Mountains.  This trail travels steeply into and out of multiple streambeds (typically dry) which may be problematic for novice riders.  Many trail loops can be made using this trail and other area trails.  Those trails include: Red Ledges #019, Red Ledges Access #160, Aspen Flat #018 and Shay Ridge #162.  To complete these loops, Forest Road #079 (North Creek) is used.
