Hero: Gary's Gulch
small-aa Icon
Located in an expanse of desert known as the Quebradas (breaks, in Spanish) near Socorro, NM, Gary's Gulch is a challenging and fun test of driver and vehicle. This trail is one of many that make up the 6,000-acre Gordy's Hill OHV Area, home to some of the best 4-wheeling in the state. While the surrounding land may seem harsh to some, it's also quite beautiful with amazing vistas and an incredible variety of exposed geological features. Under BLM purvey, the Quebradas area has many recreational uses, including 4WD, OHV, equestrian, and bicycle riding, camping, hiking, and photography. 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. There are also multiple wilderness observation areas along the Quebradas Back Country Byway, which is the main trail through the entire area. Getting to this trail takes you well into the ruggedly beautiful Chihuahuan desert of the Quebradas. Other trails must be traversed to reach this trail, so be sure to check the ratings and vehicle recommendations on those by using the Nearby Trails tab on the map above.
