Mountain Biking Ellis Trail

**   Add a review
#200 of 280 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#10493 in the world

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.

    This is my least favorite of the Sandia Mountain Trails open to mountain biking. The trail is as much doubletrack as singletrack and most of it just drops and climbs repeatedly on loose tread through less than picturesque meadows. This trail's greatest value lies in that it can be combined with the North 10K trail to make a loop for at least the northern end of the 10K route. As a loop, this is best done CCW.
