Mountain Biking Lost Dog / Redd Road

****   Add a review
#84 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas
#2,725 in the world

A fast but techinical ride. There are numerous routes one can take depending on skill level and how hard you want to ride. There are some lengthy, technical climbs, but the descents are well worth the effort. At the right time of day you might get lucky and see some of the local wildlife.

    This is a network with a lot of options. Unfortunately almost all of them are comprised primarily of loose rock. There is some fun technical stuff, but a lot of the low tech stuff is just annoying. Be prepared to work harder than you think you should for the mileage and modest elevation gain. If you're okay with long stretches of teeth rattling between fun rock stunts and flowy sections, you can have a full day of fun out here.

    Great network of trails. Lost Dog has a good variety from easy pedaling to advanced technical loose and slab descents. Parking lot is nice but can fill up quickly on the weekends. There is also a kiosk with a nice map that shows all of the trails. Signage is ok but could be improved. Hit up Trek El Paso West to get a map of the trails in the area.

    Lost Dog/Redd Road Trails in El Paso, TX are very good. I have recently moved to Austin Texas and have been riding many trails "rated" higher on this best trails in Texas list. To my suprise, the Lost Dog/Redd Road Trails in El Paso Texas were just as good, even though it is "rated" in the 60's.

    This whole trail system is on the Franklin Mountains. As such, many of the trails head up the mountain and back down the mountain. The trail will be quite rocky, however, most of the trails you can enjoy on a XC bike. However, there are some areas where more travel might be needed. Additionally, this park system has many miles trails in the general park area.

    Besides the Lost Dog Trails, El Paso also offers similar trails on the East side of Trans Mountain (Franklin Mountains) as well as, the Crazy Cat Trails located near the University of Texas At El paso, Downtown.
