Mountain Biking John A. Milne/Gutierrez Canyon Open Space

****   Add a review
#101 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico

This is a fairly small network with a few loop opportunities along the ridges and valleys on the east side of Cedar Crest. Some trails are more well defined than others and it may take a couple rides to explore the possibilities. Most of the network is beginner friendly, but there are a few spooky spots for a new rider. The climbs are short, but sharp in places.

    This is a very nice area and has added a few miles of trails since John reviewed it. He also forgot to mention that there is a BREWERY at the trail head! Good beer and food.

    This is a fun little network with some cool cruising through classic New Mexico pinion forest. There is some super fast, wide open singletrack and some very tight turns in narrow trees. This is a very minor network compared to other area riding venues, but is worth a quick stop given its accessibility.
