Mountain Biking Ellis Trail

**   Add a review
#135 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico

The trail starts across the highway from the parking area and heads north for about 2.8 miles before running into the Sandia Mountain Wilderness Area. It is a mix of doubletrack and singletrack mostly following break in the woods which traverses the Sandia Crest. This trail runs mostly parallel to the North 10K Trail, just a few hundred feet higher.
