Review: Fast and flowy. Mostly hard-packed singletrack with some bedrock sections through the washes. Sightings of deer and wild turkey are possible.

Review: Rode up Quaking Aspen, then around and back down the Berma Rd Trail, very sweet.
Make sure you start at the Hilso TH; we messed up and started at the Quaking Aspen Campground.
Trails are intermediate, mostly smooth, low grades mostly. Very flowy! My fav type. Worth the drive if you like flowy.

Similar Trail: Strawberry Canyon (McGaffey TH) - Gallup

Review: Confused here. Based on the written review, it seems like the trail and ride were really enjoyable, why only 2 stars??

Review: Loved this trail. Rode up Quaking Aspen then eventually came down Burma Road Tr. Then went back up Aspen a little ways to the Y2K loop then back down Quaking Aspen. What a hoot. Whichever way you go, be sure to come down Burma Rd Trail. Everything I rode was primo, primo, primo. Just smooth singletrack through beautiful mountain forests. Its not a black diamond, though. Its an extremely enjoyable intermediate trail.
