Anyone done the rails to trails ride near Quitaque? Planning to try it on the way back from Colorado with the Mrs.  It looks like Monks Crossing west to the tunnel and beyond would be the most interesting section.

Well, we did 12 miles in 35 degrees and despite the cold, it was a great ride.  No bats in the tunnel. Definitely will want to do it again and go a bit farther up the canyon. We had to limit the ride so we could make the drive back to Austin.  Seems like a possible bikepacking excursion- I believe camping is allowed on the route.

So you did do Monk's Crossing to the Tunnel?

Yes Monk's crossing to the tunnel is 4.5 miles and we went another 1.5 before heading back.  I imagine it might get more traffic in better weather, but we didn't see anyone from Quitaque to Flomot.  Got to love the town names!
