Perched on the rugged breaks overlooking the Pecos River, Haystack Mountain Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area offers 1,920 acres of trails to ride. From novices to experts, on bare rock and sandy washes, OHV enthusiasts can find terrain to fit their skill level. The terrain is extremely rugged, including such varied features as deep gullies with difficult hill climbs in and out of a scenic sandstone escarpment. The OHV area is designed for OHVs no wider than 50 inches, and it is ideal for motorcycles. Nationally sanctioned "Trials" events are held at the area each year. Haystack Mountain's parking lot is large enough for easy loading/unloading and can be used as a staging area for large events. The single-track trails are ideal for mountain biking as well. Restroom facilities are available but there is no potable water. Camping sites are all dry with no hook-ups.
