Mountain Biking Rim Trail

****   Add a review
#37 of 283 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#2,599 in the world

Great trail full of long climbs, long descents and challenging switchbacks. There is 32 miles of trail to work with that parrallels the road leading to Sunspot, an observatory. The trail does require a certain level of aerobic fitness and high altitude conditioning. I've seen some of my strongest amigos push their bikes up the climbs (including myself) SCF

Getting there
From Alamogordo take 82 to cloudcroft (15 miles) then right onto Sunspot Hwy. Turn on 6563 and a 1/2 mile on the right will be a good place to park , trail map, and picnic area.
