A popular trail. Bring water. Fairly easy hiking and mountain biking. Don't take a dirt bike. At the junction of Hwy 141, you need to carry your bike a short way.

It totally takes you to the wrong place! Look for "Lunch Loop" instead, maybe?? We drove around aimlessly on dirt roads for a while before we realized.

The Lunch Loop, part of the Tabeguache, is the only part I can comment on, as I'm just now exploring it. Yes, it is dog friendly. Dogs do have to mind, and you must pick up after it.
