Mountain Biking Road Apple

****   Add a review
#42 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#2,889 in the world

Rolling singletrack, starts on top of Kinsey Ridge, to the south east you can see the Navajo resevior and beyond, to the north you have an amazing view of the LaPlata Peaks. This trail is so good, Ned Overend says it's his favorite trail.

    Great views and seems to get a lot of use from cyclist and motorized. The trail has some fun places but lack any technical bits so is great for anyone who wants to ride the area. I have to say it would be awesome if there were some more advanced trails added to the system around Farmington and Aztec.

    ive ridden a few times in the past few months. bikes and atv's form like voltron! the trail is flowy, not to difficult. the swoopes and rigORmoreTis are my preferences. being that i run into mtn bikers and atv riders while on the trailS i figure why not, even tho a few portions have the No atv signs up but yet they ride - ive had a chance to talk to both mtnbikers and the atv'ers while pedaling along and have no ill words for either, altho guys with atv's challenged me to a Jump off - whichi declined, my schwinn steel frame wouldve annihilated them of course but yea. back to the review, ill def cont. to ride, i like the courses... imma noob to trail riding but the ppl ive met have been nice to chat w/...... so yea, enjoy the trail(s), next yr ill try th rally. with a newer Kano bike IF my schwinn hasnt busted up and gone scrap on me by then if not the guy in 1st place w/ the schwinn will be me :^)

    This is a motorized trail system. Created by dirt bikes and OHVs decades ago. While there are some bicycle type singletrack sections, the bulk of them make for poor quality experience. Cyclists seem to think they have claims to this system, and are working hard to exclude the users who actually created it. Uninformed, ignorant, and ungrateful cyclists are the leading cause of trail conflict here.

    Great high desert trail only 30 mins from Durango. We accessed the trail from the north near Aztec. 25 mile loop took about 4 hrs taking our time. Nothing to crazy, great scenery.
