This trail was a very pleasant surprise as I had no expectations and the trailhead is less than inspiring. However, once on the trail, there is much fun to be had. The first loop, while beginner in both aerobic and technical difficulty, bobs and weaves in a most entertaining way through the hardy junipers. The drop into the giant arroyo is a blast and the climb up the other side is stiff enough to get your heart rate up but all rideable and the many twists and turns, especially through various drainages, make for some great conservation of momentum practice. There are just enough rocks along the say to spice things up as well. On the south mesa loop at the far end of the property is a great view of a large wall of stratified red rock, more reminiscent of Moab or Sedona than New Mexico.
Very fun trail overall!
