Review: Fantastic trails. Well marked and not to hard for an old flatlander!

Review: What a laid out system!!! Easily accessible from anywhere in Santa Fe. Well marked with trail maps at every junction. Some sections are fast and flowy, others are gravel filled climbs. You can combine sections to ride for several miles or opt for the 10 mile loop found on the city maps.

Review: Fun cross country romp through the juniper dotted hills north of Santa Fe. We followed the route suggested on the cities map but had to bale before we finished it do to an intense fast moving thunderstorm. We had one strike where there was no detectable delay between flash and CRACK! Scarey. The trails were great and very very well marked. Can't wait to see more of it.

Review: Nice trail system that can be challenging or an easy ride. Technical sections ain't that really technical, most are doable for beginners.

Review: Open desert singletrack with a few fire roads running thru the network. Well signed and easy to navigate. Trails are fun, but don't flow as well as they could; a few berms would go a long way to making this a rockin' trail system. On turns, if you got off the center of the track it got very soft quickly in many places.

Review: Having a working GPS with you on this network will be a comfort. There are a lot of interconnected trails that all look similar. Note location of mountains, water tanks and antennae when you start off. this is not an expert trail ... more like easy intermediate.

Review: This place is a "Must Ride" if you love Freeride! Gap Jumps, Tabletops, Ladder Drops, Berms, Hips etc...! Rich has done a fantastic job! Freeride lives in Santa Fe. Of course, there's lots of singletrack too! The only downside is a lack of good signage. Just explore for now.

Similar Trail: I haven't yet ridden anything this good in NM.
