Gila National Forest Trail Riding Information

Anyone ever ridden some trails in this area? Planning a few days in the area in June and cannot find much information about Jeep trails? Please share if you know anything.

Well, I guess that no one has been to the Gila??

I don't have any pics to post, but we were pleasantly surprised with the area. We spent 5 days Jeeping in the Gila and Apache NF in June '09. We stayed in Reserve, NM and this proved to be the most central location. During our stay we traveled over 600 miles on FS roads and we didn't even come close to traveling them all. This is a huge area: The Gila NF alone has 3.3 million acres and combined with the adjoining Apache NF this area gives you lots of room to explore. This area is known for trophy elk hunting and there are many FS roads and off shoots to explore. We saw hundreds of elk during our travels. We saw very few vehicles on these roads during the week we were there. The main roads are well maintained and don't even require 4WD, but the less traveled roads and branches off these roads can be very interesting, especially if there has been recent rains. If you are looking for isolation, four wheeling freedom and lots of wildlife, this might be what you are looking for.
