Mountain Biking Santa Fe Rail Trail
#51 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
Very doable as an out-and-back, this trails is a relatively flat mix of dirt singletrack, doubletrack, and a few
gravel and rocky sections. It is very rideable for all experience levels, and follows an infrequently used railroad
line, crossing back and forth over it a few times. There are many splits in the trail, but they are never more
than .1 miles or so, and are either the same difficulty or very obviously up a steep hill and back down. A
mountain bike is recommended, but you could get away with riding a cyclocross bike.

From the intersection of Cerrillos Road and St. Francis Drive, go South on St. Francis 3.4 miles to a T-
intersection. Turn right onto Old Agua Fria Road and continue 0.6 miles. Cross a railroad track and immediately
turn left into a dirt parking area.
OR ride the paved rail trail from downtown Santa Fe going South, and it turns into the unimproved trail.
