Sipapu is surrounded by over 300 miles of off-road and OHV trails, from rocky single tracks to scenic, easy roads. Here, you’ll discover incredible, high elevation vistas with sweeping views into the Pecos Wilderness.
New Mexico has requirements for off-highway motor vehicles (OHVs) designed to protect the safety of all OHV users and ensure responsible and sensitive OHV use. The law requires all OHV users to register their OHVs if used on public land. New Mexico residents must purchase OHV registration decals from the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD). Non-residents can purchase OHV registration decals from the Department of Game and Fish Online Sales website (https://onlinesales.wildlife.state.nm.us/). The new Paved Road decals allowing operation of ATVs and ROVs on authorized roads are obtained the same way, via MVD for residents and via the NMDGF website for non-residents.
