Overview

Just an hour and a half south of Albuquerque, the Quebradas Back Country is home to the 6000-acre Gordy's Hill OHV area and some of New Mexico's best offroad trails. Short but challenging, Doug's Detour is a great trail to plan for when you're wanting to make the most of an offroad day in the Quebradas. This trail can be chained together with others nearby to create a nice loop through the area. With dozens of 4WD trails to experience, as well as activities like hiking, rock hunting, camping, and photography, the Quebradas Backcountry is an excellent choice for enjoying the New Mexico outdoors. Also nearby are two major protected wildlife areas, the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge to the north and Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge to the south.
