Mountain Biking Lone Pine (05628)

*****   Add a review
#59 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#4,495 in the world

This is a quick, and often times, flowing singletrack. From the southern end
of FS 12, the trail is marked by a sign. Head up the short incline which
turns immediately to the left. There will be a series of forks that branch off
back down and/or follow FS 12. (If you are traveling up from the bottom,
some of the forks may be confusing if you are using the trail map because
the are not marked. Just keep to the left or shoot down to FS 12 and you'll
end up at the trailhead). Continue descending and keep to the right and
ride about a mile. At this point, if you are going slow enough, you will see
Pinyon (05607) on your right. After passing the trailhead, continue another
0.75 miles to where the trail ends and merges onto a doubletrack. The
doubletrack is not show on the trail map because this section of the map is labeled "Private Land." Google Earth says that this is a continuation of
FS462. Either way, you can pick up Gear Grinder or Bear Scat to continue
your ride.

    There are a few signs on this trail designating it as 'Crop Duster'. For a quick downhill this is probably my favorite trail in the network. It has great flow, not too rough (except the very beginning climbing off of FS12 and the very bottom) and very fast. For a climb back up after riding Gear Grinder I'd recommend going Bear Scat to Pinyon and turning left onto this trail - it'll help you avoid other riders screaming down Crop Duster!

    A quick downhill but can be a little frustrating at the bottom if you are climbing due to the loose rock. This is a good trail to link up to and combine with other tracks to create a longer ride.
