If you are going to be in NW New Mexico check out Glenwood. Lots of cool stuff like The catwalk then countinue up the road to Mollogon ghost town, and futher up the road to Snow lake. Great views ez forset service roads in the cool pines. Well worth the trip.
All you need do is head up the hill to mora. Turn right in the center of town to Angel Fire, one of the coolest 1.25 land paved roads you'll ever cruise. Once in Angel Fire, you can take Forest Road 76 back to Tres Ritos for 40 something miles of offroading, with many opportunities to explore two track, or take Rito Olla road off of 76 down to Taos. Not really heavy duty, but nice family 'wheeling with beautiful mountain streams, lakes, meadows, and view. From Angel Fire, you can access Red River 30 miles away with some of the best wheeling in New Mexico, Goose Creek Lake, and Middle Fork lake are somewhat rough, on Middle Fork Lake, 16 sitchbacks, half of them have to be backed up with excellent waterfall picnic stop in the middle. Fourth of July Canyon is excellent off camber wheeling, followed by a trip on the old pass road. Lots to do and see here, just slightly uphill from where you'll be. Good day trips, all of em, from/to Las Vegas.
