ABOUT THE TRAIL

The Enchanted Rockies Trail is a series of overland trails that begin in south-central New Mexico and end in north-central Colorado.

This self-designed route consists of nearly 800 miles of off-pavement travel and passes through multiple districts of 9 National Forests and 2 National Parks along the way.

This is a very mild, family friendly overland route that most stock four wheel drive vehicles should be able to traverse without much trouble during dry weather. (The trail conditions degrade quickly with rain and snow.)

Please note that this route passes through some very high elevations that will be closed during the winter months due to snowfall. The optimal travel time is late June through early October. Be sure and do your research on road closures before setting out.
