Mountain Biking Steam Engine Trail

****   Add a review
#142 of 282 mountain bike trails in New Mexico
#8,507 in the world

This downhill trail starts across from Redi's Run on Bull-of-the-Woods Mountain Road and ends at the Sawmill Trail. The trail surface is brown, mostly off-camber forest dirt occasionally interrupted by a root. After leaving the Bull-of-the-Woods Mountain Road, it undulates in a generally downwards direction near a crystal clear mountain creek. Occasionally there will be alternate lines you can take around the more challenging sections, but I think any intermediate rider could ride the whole trail through. After the trail leaves the creek, it ends at an intersection with the Sawmill Trail.

    I love the undulating, off-camber nature of this trail. Although it is not very technical, the trail's grip and its relatively straight path allow many riders to get a lot of speed. It is bound to please almost anyone. Enjoy!
