Mountain Biking Aspen Vista

****   Add a review
#14 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#795 in the world

Climb from 10,000ft at the parking lot to the top of Tesque Peak at ~12,000ft, and optionally continue on to
Deception Peak at 12,357ft. Views from both are fantastic. The trail to Tesque Peak (where the antennas
are) is all service road, and is all very rideable, but continuing onward to Deception Peak will involve some
hike-a-bike. Mileage is to Tesque Peak. It is possible to ride down through the ski area, but riding back down
the way you came is probably a safer bet. There is definitely snow here during the winter.
