Overview

Located in the northeast corner of the BLM-administered Gordy's Hill OHV Area, Pipeline Road is a handy little connector that can get you between the upper end of the Arroyo de la Parida and a maintained county dirt road, Johnson Hill Road. It's a scenic and easy drive through the New Mexico desert, and it provides a way to get back to pavement more quickly than wheeling the length of the arroyo or traversing the various 4WD trails leading back to the Quebradas Backcountry Byway. The Quebradas/Gordy's Hill OHV Area offers diverse recreation opportunities including many trails that traverse deeply dissected canyons, high sandstone and limestone bluffs, terraces, and escarpments. On the higher ridges of the Coyote Hills, there are scenic views of the Rio Grande Valley to the west. There are a variety of 4WD trails here, offering challenges for all experience levels.
