The road winds and winds but it's only for about 12-13 miles. The trees are lush and the forest is fairly thick. The temperature is always cool up there so take a light jacket. There are several picnic grounds (no overnight camping allowed) and it is $3.00 for day use at each one. If you are going to hang out in that area a lot, you can get a $30 pass for a year at the Forest Service station in Tijeras. Everything is very clean (bathrooms, picnic tables, etc.) We did notice a couple of small graffiti marks. This place is a great place to spend the day. I love this drive.
