This trip is a bicycle ride on paved roads from Jemez Springs to the Gilman Tunnels and back. The Gilman tunnels are located in the most scenic section of the Guadalupe River Box and were originally blasted out of the rock in the 1920's for a logging railroad.  The cottonwoods along the route will hopefully be near the peak of their fall colors, making it a most beautiful ride.

This trip is part of the 70th Anniversary celebration. Starting early from Pajarito Ski parking lot, we head out to Canada Bonita then toward Guaje Canyon. We will turn left before descending to the canyon and find a way to go up to Cerro Rubio. It is all off trail from here. From my hike here two years ago I know there are tremendous numbers of downed trees along the way. It is a challenging and difficult terrain to navigate.  Please understand you should not be discouraged by constantly going above/under/around downed trees when you sign up for this hike.
