Part of the Road Apple Trails System.

This new trail connects Anasazi and Kinsey and Rigor Mortis. It’s more fun ridden north to south as it peels off of Rigor Mortis just before the parking lot and connects to Anasazi at the road crossing. It is marked with many BLM signs and flags, very easy to follow. Rolls up and down hills with lots of corners, some sand, and loose cobbles until it really gets packed in, but not bad. –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!
