Mountain Biking Golden Open Space

****   Add a review
#44 of 283 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#3,111 in the world

This system consists of a loop up top and a long spur that drops into a giant arroyo and climbs out the other side, making another small loop on the South Mesa. There are additional dead end spurs to overlooks along the way. The first loop is novice friendly and the long spur is solid intermediate riding.

Getting there
From the town of Cedar Crest, travel north on highway 14. Shortly after the 550/Sandia Ski Area turnoff, go left on La Madera Road and follow it as it winds and squiggles through developed areas and then out into the open for about 9 miles, looking for a sign on the Right that says Golden. This is the trailhead. Or further north, go left (right if coming from the north) on Puertocito Rd and follow it back to the west/south for about 7 miles.
