Mountain Biking Quaking Aspen Trail

****   Add a review
#34 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#2,131 in the world

This is a stacked loop trail network with map/signs at all intersections and a
developed trailhead. There are also other trails in the vicinity. These are
rolling singletracks through mountain (7500' to 9000') Ponderosa pine
forest, flowery meadows, dramatic mesas, and intimate canyons laced with
19th century logging railroad corridors. See
for directions, maps, and gpx files.

    Many, many trail segments here that can be combined for an almost infinite variety of loops. Segments range from smooth hardpack to super chunky. There truly is something for everyone here, but the best thing is that almost noone is here! This area receives very little traffic despite the quality, quantity, and variety of available riding in the attractive Zuni mountains.

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

    Great rail system. Perfect stop off point driving from Phoenix to Durango, CO. Love purple haze.

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

    Nice rolling singletrack. The trails were well marked. The Berma trail was a blast. Enjoy the ride.
