Mountain Biking Elena Gallegos Open Space / North Foothills

****   Add a review
#4 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#335 in the world

Park at the Cottonwood Springs Trail parking lot for easy access to this fun loop. Trail runs counter-clockwise. From the start point head up to 230a then East passing the 230a/342 junction (0.5 mi) on to the 230a/341 junction (0.2 mi). From the 230a/341 junction head North riding 230 to the top of the mountain. Couple of fun technical challenges along this leg of the loop. Once you get to the top of the trail 230 will start to head West. From this point down to the 230/365 junction it's a rocky downhill. The big payoff! Once you get to the 230/365 junction head South on 365 to meet back up with 230a and finish off the loop.
