The best that Albuquerque has to ride. However, the DOD wants to shut this down. Please sign the petition at http://www.saveotero.org/

Summary:
The trail has some awesome downhills, and great technical areas, with the added bonus of some beautiful views. Check the ranger station for a map. Visit the save Otero website to sign the petition. The base can spend the money elsewhere - leave the best Albuquerque-area trail open!!!!

Recommended Route:
Still experimenting, I do about a 9 mile loop starting and ending at the second parking lot.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cedro is a cardio killer with some sweet technical areas.

Reviewed by: Nate , from Albuquerque, NM

Summary:
I believe it is about 4 miles south of I-40 from Tijeras. There are two Otero canyon system trailheads. The first you will drive directly towards on the highway (S14 - may be marked other). The highway cures away from it to the left. The next pull out on the right is probably the best spot to park. There are several large boulders lining the pull off. It is a very nice trail. Starts off easy and gets increasingly harder. Stop when you are ready to turn around and enjoy the dirt/rock single track down hill. Be careful for other riders, the trail is popular. It is more than worth the effort to try and save the canyon for public access - best trail I've found around Albuquerque. Visit the mentioned web site please.

Recommended Route:
There are many trails to choose from in and around the main Otero canyon. I usually ride up and then down the canyon.
