    Rio Puerco is close and even has a little area called mini-Moab. This would be my first recommendation.
    Mild to Wild obstacles.
    Cedro Peak is an easy mountain trail but is not good when muddy.
    Further south is some extreme stuff at Gordy's Hill and then more extreme stuff in Las Cruces.

    PM me if you want more info

    Funny you should ask. I was just thinking of sending 2Cross a message asking the same question. I was born and mostly raised in NM, most of my family is still there.

    We loved living in Albuquerque and miss it. I didn't get to wheel much, but did explore a lot.

    I remember a good trail/road on Cedro peak with lots of rocky ledges. For adventure, you can throw in the "highway" coming off of Sandia. State 165 off of state 536 and don't forget to stop at the prehistoric cave and explore. There is so much history around Albuquerque. And don't forget the singing road that Eddy posted about coming down from Tijeras.

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

뱖ayoflife is a moniker that I뭭e been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
