Mountain Biking Haystack Mountain
#87 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
Haystack is a series of OHV trails on the bluffs or mesas overlooking the Pecos River Valley, Roswell, Capitan Mountain and Sierra Blanca Mountain in the distance. There some technical singletrack contained within the network of trails and some very smooth, more relaxing rides. All the rides pass through a beautiful high desert area and are very enjoyable. The trails jump in and out of dry creek beds and this provides the most technical terrain. Some of the creek beds, however, are so deep with sand that they are not rideable, but provide you with a soft landing if you jump down into the creek to fast (just ask my buddy Ernie)! This is my favorite of the few mountain biking areas in the Roswell area.

From Roswell, take Hwy 70 east about 19 miles. As you crest the bluffs overlooking the Pecos River Valley you will see a set of antennas on your left. Once you approach the antennas you will see the sign for Haystack Mountain OHV
Area. The entrance is on the left.
