I have ridden the West section 6 times now and it is just a blast. The first time was an out and back from Devisedero, which was interesting - but included a hike a bike in the switchbacks. For a shorter and quicker ride, park at Devisedero and ride up the paved US 64 to the Capulin trailhead then ride back. You will get paved and forest road up front, but end up with one killer ride. If you like the descent on Devisedero, then imagine tacking on Sidewinder (in Santa Fe) to the front of it.
Many options to choose from.
I've done the SBT-descending on Mondragon then tacked on the Capulin to Devisadero to finish. I mentioned the out and back above.
And of course there is the 26 mile shuttle to OK Canyon and ending back up Taos. If you are form out of town, Toby and Native sons should be able to help you out.
Other recommended trails in the same area:
SBT, EBT, Ojitos, Cerro Vista, Angle Fire, Mondragon....too many to list.
