Pinto Canyon/River Road

I've heard about both of these in the Big Bend area and looked at maps for both.Is the ride suitable for experienced riders only, or can it a good ride for
a novice? Any information will help me decide my next possible ride.

It may be late but Pinto Canyon to Marfa is easy. The River Road is very deep sand with pea size gravel and will wear you out. You have to maintain a fairly fast pace to stay on top of the sand and gravel and it is several hours on the pegs and wears on your arms. Fun as hell and can be ridden on the KLR with good tires. When you get to Rio Grande Village, if you are going west to east, you wont find alot of food to choose from but there will be gas. After Rio Grande Village you might want to head north and ride Old Ore road. It is a little rocky but alot of fun.
