This trip is a bicycle ride on paved roads from Jemez Springs to the Gilman Tunnels and back. The Gilman tunnels are located in the most scenic section of the Guadalupe River Box and were originally blasted out of the rock in the 1920's for a logging railroad.  The cottonwoods along the route will hopefully be near the peak of their fall colors, making it a most beautiful ride.

This is a one night backpacking trip into the Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness Area under the Harvest full moon. The backpacking is not particularly rugged or difficult but requires that you carry all the water you will need for a 24h period. At a minimum, you should plan on carrying a gallon of water away from the trailhead.
