Mountain Biking Little Walnut

****   Add a review

A nice little network of singletrack that can be very fast and very flowy at times. There are a few climbs and if you go on the backside (southside) of Gomez Peak you will encounter some fairly technical trail with plenty of rocks which would take some serious skill to ascend. The north end of trails that hooks up with the Continental divide trail are well groomed. Just watch out for hikers. Follow the powerline trail down from Little Walnut Rd. for a nice decent. The network of trails out here are not always "official". Get a map from a local bike shop (Twin Sisters Bicycles or Gila) before you ride. Trail intersections are well marked.
