These trails are great. There are lots of trails with singletrack. A combination of fast downhills, awesome scenery, some technical sections, and lots of trails that branch off and are open to bikers provide for a lot of riding time.

Summary:
This is a great network of trails close to home great for afterwork rides. Offers a little bit of everything with some pretty technical sections towards north of ellena gallegos, some good hills and fun fast downhills.

Recommended Route:
Hit the hill up to the pino trailhead (where it enters the national forest) and continue through a really fun fast singletrack back down.

Summary:
This was a nice trail, friendly hikers with dogs and watch out for horses. It was $2.00 for parking. Some of the trails were really busy. I don't think I would go up there on a weekend or on a holiday.
Watch out for the cactus. Once I resigned to the fact I was going to get stuck, the trail was a lot of fun. I am not sure which trails I took but all of them seemed very nice.

Can't wait to go again!!!!

Summary:
Following the route I took, the trail seemed like it was going to be boring. But after crossing the Pino Trail (140) things got a lot more interesting! First of all, there was two or three inches of snow on the trail at the upper reaches. Then I started hitting the rock gardens. It got really fun... This is a great resource for Albuquerque!!! I found joggers and dogwalkers to be polite. I didn't sense any tension between the various users of the trails. Keep up the good work bikers so you don't lose the trails.

Recommended Route:
I was in town on business and followed the route recommended to me by the shop I rented the bike at.
