Like Juan Tabo or Manzano/4 Hills, this trail system (not to be confused with the larger Placitas Trail System which lies to the south) isn't much fun and is only worth riding if you've done everything else in the area and positively must ride something new.
The area is unmapped and unmarked. Many trails merge in and fork out of the main loop, and the main loop isn't always the most obvious course, so it's easy to get off track. The constant small loose rocks are only broken up by deep, super soft dirt.
The "loop" is best ridden counterclockwise. Heading east, you gradually gain elevation via many ups and downs. Once reaching a saddle on the return, be sure to keep left to complete the loop. there will be some ridgetop riding but the payoff for all that sandy climbing is a single, ridiculously steep fall line plunge that loses all that elevation in a short distance, and is on super soft sand filled with loose rock.
Bottom line, there's just not much fun to be had here.
