Review: The bad about this trail system: several straight uphill sections on double track, a short length of trail overall, and a considerable amount of horse traffic and the accompanying puddles and pies. The good: great hilly terrain with long views, when you hit the singletrack sections it's rocky and fun (especially the descent toward and through Elkins Cyn), and the place is never crowded. Worth a visit if you're nearby. Pair a ride here with one at nearby Galisteo Basin for a good day.

Review: Passing through the area, I stopped here for two reasons: 1. I knew everything up around Santa Fe would be snowed in (it was January) and 2. I wanted to do something I hadn't done before. It turned out to be a worthy ride. There are some good climbs, great scenery, and some nice singletrack. There's only about 5 miles of trails here, of which less than 3 can be called singletrack, so it's hardly worth going oit of your way for if rides like Dale Ball are clear, but it's great if you're hankering for a dry ride in the off season. There's not much tech, but you will dismount for an impossibly tight, rock-stepped switchback if you take the Cortez Mine Trail. I went midday, midweek and had the place completely to myself, but there were lots of hoofprints, so I'm guessing this is a popular weekend destination for equestrians.
