Part of the Road Apple Trails System.
This high desert area is very popular with Farmington riders, and Durango folks getting away from the snow. Kinsey rolls North along the edge of a valley passing various gas wells and associated infrastructure. The trail tread is sandy but firm and the interest comes from turns and rolling dips. There are directional signs and a mysterious trail lettering system that no one understands. The area is under heavy pressure from ATVs but the singletrack is still holding up. Coming back South, to ride Rigor Mortis. –MtbProject Description.
Road Apple Trail is rolling singletrack, which starts on top of Kinsey Ridge. To the southeast, you can see the Navajo Reservoir and beyond, while to the north, you have an amazing view of the La Plata Peaks. This trail is so good, Ned Overend says it is his favorite trail!
