NM Wheeling areas?

Hey all, I'm currently working in the Artesia, NM area for a while and was just curious if there are any good trails(nothing crazy) in or around this area or within a couple of hours that any one would recommend. I'm pretty unfamiliar with the area, I haven't been out or through here since I was a little kid. thanks!

Nobody, really? There's too many good looking jeeps out here for there to not be any recommendations....

You are assuming those cool Jeep guys you see will find this obscure thread. You might consider talking to (in real life) one of those cool guys.

To the west of you at Cloudcroft, many forest roads to both the north and south. Indian Reservation to the north limits area a little, but a lot to the south. No real crawling, but some pretty drives as well as a visit to Sun Spot (Solar observatory).

To the south of you is Carlsbad and the forest roads to the south west of the town. A lot of that (if not all) is closed right now due to to high fire conditions.

You may want to check on fire conditions even in the Carlsbad area.

I'm never out that far east in NM. But here in Abq there is Montessa, which is just south of the sunport off I-25, and there's an even better area out at the end of a street called Southern in Rio Rancho. Montessa is mostly dirt with little crawling but it's still fun.

There's stuff farther north in the Jemez too. I wish I knew what was over near Artesia sorry I'm no help

Wranglers aren't the only Jeeps out there don't be haten
