blue South Boundary

21.5mi | 1,600ft of climbing | 4,400ft of descending

This newly minted IMBA Epic trail is consistently ranked the best ride in New Mexico. Over twenty miles of classic single-track side-hill wind through lush alpine meadows, cool pine forests and quaking aspen groves. Hire a shuttle to hack your ascent, or ride it like the locals: an all-day loop.

greenblue Horse Thief Loop

13mi | 950ft of climbing

What this intermediate trail lacks in diversity, it more than makes up for in scenery. The half that hugs the Rio Grande Gorge provides plenty of photo ops to take your mind off the few punchy climbs that’ll test your legs and lungs.

blue Woodpile Loop

One of the hardest trails to find in some of the most beautiful forest around. Hard climbing followed by insanely fast descending. You’ll never have more fun being lost. Take your GPS, and take your time — the network of old logging roads begs to be expanded into.
