HCH,
Good luck on your hunt, that is great time of year to be in the woods. There are some pretty remote areas in 6C but you will be very hard pressed to find a place that is 5+ miles from any roads There are several forest roads and 2 tracks that make the majority of this unit pretty accessible. That being said, I suggest you visit TopRut.com and download the unit overlays that you open in Google Earth, great starting point to see where the roads are and where you might get away from them.

unt Hard. Shoot Straight. Kill Clean. Apologize to No One.

Agree with Teryn. There may be an area or two that is more than three miles from where a trail used to be before it was washed out by the 2011 flash floods, but otherwise, it's near impossible to get five miles from any road, let alone a trail. There is a pretty active hiking community in Los Alamos, and consequently there are trails going almost everywhere.

But the first thing I would do is make certain you have a GPS chip that clearly marks the boundaries for 6B, Bandelier, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, Cochiti, Pajarito, and Los Alamos, so that you don't accidently cross one of those lines in pursuit of elk. That being said, you'll find elk pretty much on the Forest side of every one of those lines. The elk tend to move a lot (much of it back and forth from 6B), so it's all about timing.

Been hearing good things about the northwest corner of the unit that used to be 6a. And I believe a lot of the roads have been closed on the north side of Valle. Basically everywhere else was bombarded with not only hunters, but people interfering with hunts scouting and a ton of hikers out during Labor Day weekend. Nothing like seeing archery season elk bail because of people scouting for muzzleloader deer.
