Nestled in the hills of Upper Amado Canyon, the short but challenging Corona Canyon trail is a "must-do" while you're in the neighborhood. Corona Canyon sits in a part of the Quebradas that is home to several of the area's more technical trails, like Bad Hair Day and Pucker Falls, so it's easy to string a group of them together for a full day of 4-wheeling adventure. Off the beaten path, it's also a great area to rock hunt, hike, and camp wherever you can find some flat high ground. The Quebradas (Spanish for "breaks") encompasses the 600-acre Gordy's Hill OHV Area, home to dozens of 4WD trails as well as singletrack, hiking, and ATV trails. The area is adjacent to two wilderness study areas and there are two nearby wildlife refuges - the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge to the south and the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge to the north. Millions of years of exposed geological features accent the landscape in this high mountain desert, and beauty abounds here in every season.
