South Boundary Trail 
[wpMetaBeta mpid=”4073073″]

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.


Horse Thief Trail
[wpMetaBeta mpid=”4440009″]

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.


Rift Valley Trail

For the beginner biker, or someone looking for a meditative spin, these trails provide more than enough single track to get your blood pumping, and enough scenic overlooks to get your heart racing.


Lost Lake Trail 
[wpMetaBeta mpid=”7006192″]

Accessed from the Red River side of the mountains, this alpine adventure has it all: long climbs, talus slopes, alpine lakes, and ripping descents. Clockwise presents a more technical up.


Devisadero Loop 
[wpMetaBeta mpid=”7013439″]

Experience the more technical side of Taos, including steep climbs, rock steps, and gaping hikers who can’t believe anyone is insane enough to ride this trail.


Talpa Traverse 
[wpMetaBeta mpid=”4490597″]

A local gem that offers a short-but-sweet roller-coaster of punchy MTB goodness. Watch for horses around blind corners.


Northside at Taos Ski Valley 
[wpMetaBeta mpid=”7008629″]

This pay to play area is the premier high-alpine workout in Taos. Its steep terrain is some of the most scenic riding in the area, and new trails are being added regularly.


Woodpile Trail 
[wpMetaBeta mpid=”7032170″]

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.
