As some previous reviews commented a lot of the boondocking on this road is closed. Probably due to overuse. But as you drive up Camp May Road you will find a hand full of spots still available. The road during the day was busy but at night quiet. (A security guard at the ski area said they were filming “Brave” a new NBC TV show on the... more

“Stunning views next to the gorge”

Reviewed May 28, 2017

After you take the large hairpin turn at the start of the trek up the mountain, I found a beautiful and rather large open spot about 1/4 - 1/2 mi. up on the right side. It has a bad dip going in which someone with a better & younger back could fill with some rocks and wood to make it easier to get in. I did pull the trailer in (an Oliv... more

Travel 2 miles up West Rd. and turn right at the Pajarito Mountain Ski Area sign. You will then encounter a narrow paved road that continues for a few mil... more

The road to the Pajarito Ski Area is paved, and is rich (I was going to say littered) with boondocking spots, but the road itself will serve as the first test. Not far after you start up the road, you’ll encounter a very tight and very steep hairpin turn. IF your rig has enough horses to navigate that (and mine barely did!), then and o... more
