Directions: North from Albuquerque to Bernalillo (about 15 miles) then west on NM44 (550) about 22 miles to San Ysidro. Caution: Don't speed through San Ysidro. Proceed west on NM44 (550) towards Cuba one mile. On the north side of the road will be a gate. This gate is unlocked on trials days (but please close it behind you). On other days it is locked; contact a club member for entry. The riding areas are 1.2 miles up a sandy/dirt road which is usually passable by any vehicle. Spark arresters are required. This area is dedicated for trials. MX'ers, ATV's, and other such vehicles are not allowed. The area is sometimes grazed, and it is not unusual for hikers to be in the area; please play well with others!
Sipapu is conveniently located on Highway 518, just 20 scenic miles southeast of Taos in northwestern New Mexico.
