This trail has map/signs at all intersections and is very easy to follow. The three mesas increase in difficulty. There is a steel sundial at the Third Mesa Overlook and some more art scattered along the trail. The singletrack is smooth and narrow with some short intense climbs. A premier SS rigid ride, and also home to the annual Dawn Til Dusk 12 hr endurance race in mid April.
Review: Don't know if I'd drive 8 hrs to ride these trails, but had a great time. If you're in Gallup this is a must ride! Very fun! When you put the I-40 cities together, this should be a stop- Albuquerque, Gallup, Flagstaff, and Sedona make for an epic trip.
Review: I was on my way to Sedona when some locals at White Mesa recommended we stop here. These trails are absolutely awesome! A nice blend of mostly intermediate trail with some beginner and advanced mixed to keep it fresh. Super fun lines, mild exposure, and flow sections sprinkled with technical sections keep you smiling and having fun the entire ride. Also some great scenic views! Definitely recommend if you're driving through I-40. Locals who get to ride these trails are lucky to have this in their back yards! These trails are made for mountain bikes!
Review: I've got to admit I didn't expect much when we stopped here on our trip. Was I ever surprised. This trail is laid out extremely well and constantly included interesting features whether natural or man made. The distance was perfect for a break from driving. Tread is well maintained. We will stop here more often!
Review: First time riding in Gallup...stopped on the way to Sedona & I'm so glad I did. I started at 9 & rode the whole system before the afternoon winds came in. It's a dry, smooth rolling trail- classic high desert- with short climbs & slickrock. a perfect ride for spring or fall. hope to return for the 12 hour.
Review: Great trail system in an area you might not think there was anything. Started from the West TH and road clockwise. Stay left all the way. There is now good signage for each loop and even shows you where you are on the loops. Trails all well marked and in this weekday ride there were others hiking, running & riding the trails. Some great technical single track at the end with drop-offs. Not for beginner here. Trails are a mix of hard pack, sand and slick rock. This is high desert for sure and would not recommend a mid-day summer ride here.
Review: Variety of skill levels available. Go to the east TH (the app leads you to the west TH) if you wish to start off or stay on easier but engaging trails. Some nice views and interesting rock formations can be viewed more from the west end however.
