Summary:
I've ridden these trails several times over the years and never found them to be in horrid shape. They can get dusty after a dry spell and the 'cycles can tear up sections on occasion. Still, they're a fun enough ride that I'll make the trip out there on the odd occasion.

Summary:
I have to say that we might be a little spoiled here in Albuquerque. Yup, the ATV's have done some damage, and yup, they continue to ride in this trail netwrok. But people - remember that we get these hundred miles of trails 15-mins from work!!!!

The ATV's can't ruin the dump road climb, they haven't found some of the singletrack jewels strewn out through this place....but they have found lower pine, etc and all of the original fast motorcylce track.

My point is that this place still rocks, and we really need to appreciate it. Me and my crew always adds at least something to Cedro on everyride out there. Stacking rocks or trees at singletrack heads, pinching down lower pine, etc.

Yeah, Trail Partners is lame - they put up signs this summer telling the ATV's where to go. So do you own part and keep riding here, and fix the trail when you ride.

I still think this is a great network, and there is no way anyone can justify calling this a 2. 5 all the way just for what we have. Imagine an Abq w/o it....and otero. Yeeeech,

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Four Hills, Tijeras Canyon, South Foothills, Otero, Faulty, too many to name....

Summary:
This trail system has much to offer. 5-hills road is the best put-in point for the eastern "wilderness." And it is sad to say, each time I go up there, it is becoming more and more a wilderness - ruled by some little roto-tiller type vehicles. I plan to go back and clear out some of the carnage soon. To whoever placed all those rocks at Otero canyon, I'd like to say THANK YOU. Your efforts have been appreciated. I plan to do the same for "cedidro" soon. THE SECTION BETWEEN PINON TR. AND JUAN'S TR. NEEDS WORK BAD! That trail has awesome potential. Some day we will live to see and enjoy it.

Recommended Route:
5-hills east to Roller coster/ Juans / Pinon 5-hills west to Wild Cat and up Robin's 2-track

Other recommended trails in the same area:
(better known west side trails)

Summary:
I havn't ridden there in many years, not since college. But in response to others about the condition of the trails, they were built and used to be maintained by a group headed by Charlie Ervin, owner of Two Wheel Drive in ABQ. He created and sells the map of the Cedro/otero Area. To find out about maintainance, contact him. he is awesome and a dear old friend. I greatly miss ol' Cedro and Otero and it hurts me to know that they are not getting the respect they deserve.

Summary:
It's too bad that there are no organizations or people willing to close a trail anymore somewhat similar to what they did with Otero Canyon up there. These trails are eroding faster than hardtails on the market. This place used to be a lot of fun to take a few friends with and ride to your hearts content but now that they are falling apart I don't even touch it anymore. What a shame! I have tried repeatedly to find out about trail building organizations out here but to no avail!

Recommended Route:
You can take any combination and it would be fun.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Oak Flat is relatively unused. I tend to stick to there.
