Lunch Rendezvous - Sunday November 18, 2018

Postby SandyBallard » Mon Nov 05, 2018 9:12 am

After lunch in Mountainair Frank Pierce is going to lead a dirt ride up to the summit of Capilla Peak in the Monzanos. This is a relatively straightforward gravel Forest Service road that starts in the town of Manzano and runs up to some radio towers on the crest of the Manzanos at about 9300 ft elevation. The ride is about 9 miles long, gains about 3000 ft elevation and, according to Google Maps, should take about 40 minutes each way. Sounds like a blast!

Here is screenshot and link to Google Map of the ride:

The gps coordinates of the beginning of the gravel road in Manzano are 34.64754, -106.34488 and Capilla Peak is located at 34.70142, -106.40155.

Thank you Frank for leading this ride!

Cheers,
Sandy
