Trail Description
About this trail
Galisteo Basin Preserve has a network of singletrack and old ranch roads, about half of which is open to bikes. Fortunately, the most interesting trails are open to bikes. There's nothing technical, but nice singletrack with especially good views from the ridgetop. Description and map are available at http://www.galisteobasinpreserve.com/index.php.

Review: Great trail! It is well marked and while there is not a lot of technical challenges you do get a number of terrain changes as well as a lot of quick up and down to make things interesting. I did a 7.8 mile loop leaving from the south most trailhead but you can also leave from the cowboy shack trailhead. There are markings at most intersections and a lot more to explore than what I rode. I would like to go back at some point to try more of the loops. If you are passing through Santa Fe as I was I would say this is your best option for a quick to medium length ride.

Review: I'm from Florida, an intermediate level MTB. This trail is nice, the only thing, as typical in NM is the trails typically have one incline and one decline.

Review: Winding singletrack through a beautiful desert. There are extended climbs and descents, as well as plenty of rocky sections that have just enough tech to keep it interesting. I didn't expect much, but was very pleasantly surprised by this trail system.

Review: Great ride! There are over 25 miles (with plans for another 25 to be added) of trails ranging in technical difficulty from smooth dirt trail to more challenging climbs and technical obstacles. The trail is well marked with maps along the way. I wish I had more time to explore as I was passing through Santa Fe.

Review: Might be worth mentioning that the Singletrack Online trail map is nowhere nearly correct.
