Mountain Biking Quazemon

****   Add a review
#67 of 280 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#4416 in the world

The sign at the trailhead puts this trail at 3.5 miles with 1400 ft of climbing, but that includes a loop at the bottom of 1.4M (0.7 each side) plus a 2.1M extension at the far end. The trail is mostly doubletrack, some reverting to singletrack, on a burn scar, which occasionally adds to the challenge. At the top, the trail merges with the Pipeline Road and may be extended to the Guaje Ridge trail for a longer outing.

    4 stars for mostly doubletrack? In this case, sure. The fire scar has turned this old doubletrack into mostly exposed bedrock, full of fractures, ledges, and rollers, giving much of it an almost Moab/Porcupine Rim kind of feel. The climb is stiff and relentless, but not so much as you need a third lung to pull it off, and most of it is pretty entertaining, helping keep your mind off the pain. This makes the best climbing leg in the Los Alamos system and provides a great way to access the most excellent Guaje Ridge. But it's also a blast to scream down as an out-and-back or after climbing the lower portion of Pipeline Road.
