60updates bonus hike:

Forest Road 321 accesses a
secluded corner of the Mountainair
Ranger District. It's a good area to
explore, especially when trails near
Fourth of July Campground get
crowded.

The road is designated for
high-clearance vehicles, though the
two miles from NM 55 to the forest
gate are suitable for most vehicles.
Beyond the gate, it does get rough
in spots.

Note that the gate is locked
November through May, closing the
area to motorized vehicle use.
