Description

This two-track provides a 'bail-out' for those who don't want to run the rocky El Nogal finish of the South Boundary Trail #164 and consists of doubletrack traverses followed by a ripping descent with dozens of drainage berms ripe for hucking.

From the log-drop intersection on the South Boundary Trail #164, head left (south) on the doubletrack logging road (closed to vehicles) to the rocky overlook. Make a hard right (back north) following the logging road to the downhill section. At the bottom, make a hard right up a steep, gravelly climb to South Boundary Trail #164.

(To skip the steep connector climb between the Talpa Traverse and El Nogal, you can continue down to Hwy 585 and return via the shoulder to Hwy 64 and the trailhead.)

Traveled the other direction, the trail provides a leg-burning, lung-busting, relentless climb for those who just want to hot-lap the El Nogal section of the South Boundary Trail #164.

Note: Some maps may show a segment of the Ojitos Trail continuing northeast of the junction with the SBT. This trail does not exist in any reasonably rideable form.
