The roads in are somewhat better from Grants than the north side, but either way no big deal. High clearance is nice but not necessary on the main tracks. Scenery and forest are gorgeous. If you want to stroll to the top of the mountain...More

Mount Taylor is a very good hiking destination. Lots of trails and rewarding vistas. It's possible to hike to the top fairly easily. I really enjoyed Horace Mesa for the views.

Ran a 50k race at Mt. Taylor end of September. Hard to keep eyes on the trail! Vistas from the mountain were breathtaking. CDT was in very good condition and fun to run/hike. Lots of really nice dispersed camping spots. Roads were a bit washboard,...More
