“This 23 mile section of the Tabeguache Trail connects Highway 141 with Monument Road.”— Kristen Arendt
At mile 9.1, the route descends briefly into Bangs Canyon. At mile 9.8, cross the drainage and begin a steep, rough climb. At mile 10, begin a gradual descent into an open park-like landscape. Pinyon Mesa is on the left. Take a left at mile 10.7.
At mile 12.9, you'll pass a spring and galvanized stock tank and begins a steepish drop into Rough Canyon. Cross the dry creek bed at mile 15. At this point, the route begins a long climb along a sandstone bench.
The trail reaches the Little Park Road at mile 17.3. Turn right onto the paved Little Park Rd. At mile 20.3, turn left onto a singletrack route that is well-marked and follow it to the Tabeguache Trailhead along Monument Road. Be aware that these last few miles travel through the Lunch Loops trail system that offers a full range of singletrack trails worth exploring.
