Mountain Biking Armijo Trail

***   Add a review
#158 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#9,468 in the world

The first stretch of this trail as you drop off Faulty is a badly eroded wash filled with jagged rocks of all sizes. After exiting the wash, the trail is mostly buff with a gentle downhill grade and a few techy bits thrown in. It makes for a good loop option with Bill Spring and Faulty. You will need a good map or a local to find your way back to where you started.

    The wash that begins this ride is positively heinous; steep, rutted, and filled with jagged rocks just waiting to pinch-flat you. However, after completing this rut, the rest of the ride is pretty mellow. The grade is enough to keep you flowing downhill, but nothing white-knuckle. I did encounter equestrians here on a weekday, so beware and be friendly if you give this one a go. It does make a great loop rather than just doing a full out-and-back on Faulty.
