Trail Description
About this trail
The Birdhouse Ridge Trail is similar to other Tijeras rides, with just a little more roughness thrown in. It can be ridden either direction, as a stiff climb or an extended downhill. It makes simple loop with Tunnel Canyon/West Ridge or an add-on for extra mileage on any of the Otero/Tunnel canyon rides.

Review: I like this trail. It has been well designed and built with biking in mind. I prefer it from S to N, downhill direction.

Review: This is a Great trail. I've only ridden it downhill. It's pretty fast and flowy, but rough enough, and exposed enough, to keep you from going all out. It has a pretty constant off-camber, with likely injuries if you go off on the lower side. There are some interesting rock features here and there, with quite a few tight corners.

Review: This is a great addition to the Tijeras stable of rides. The trail rides well either up or down. I prefer to climb up Tunnel/West Ridge and save Birdhouse for the downhill. Aspect is everything in theses mountains--on the way down you will encounter sun-baked cactus hills on the south-facing slopes and lush, deep dark woods on the steep, north facing slopes. This trail ranges from buff to small rocky to big rocky to rooty. You'll get a little of everything on this very cool descent. Definitely worth doing if you've already done Otero.
