Mountain Biking Placitas Trails

*****   Add a review
#42 of 280 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#3011 in the world

Lots of singletrack within pinon and juniper trees. Also a big dirt road (5k loop) that makes a loop around a large part of the Placitas trail system.

    Most of the trail signs have been installed now. Dusty out there. We need rain in this region bad.

    Nice ride with quick access to the trail. Watch for rattle snakes in the evening. My son and I came across a diamond back on the trail last night. Just have to keep your eyes open

    A blast for all levels of riders! Small rock gardens at the beginning, but can be avoided by dropping in just a bit further down the dirt road.

    Fun flowy downhill. The trail is only about a foot wide. Still prestine single track that has not been widened by baby strollers or sloppy riders. Dirt was perfect after a light rain the evening before.

    Long steady climb up towards the mountains from Fenceline Trail. Look for the Rhythm Trail on your left on the way up for a fun flowy trail headed back north toward Mustang Alley.

    This is the main trial to start on in Placitas. Fun Flowy trail headed south along the old Fenceline. Keep an eye out for the big four way intersection about a mile south and head up towards the mountain to start your adventure.
