â€œThe Whoopsâ€ is a compilation of 3 trails in the Glade Run Trails area North of Farmington, NM. The area is criss crossed with many interesting trails and this is a fun, 9-mile, figure 8. It includes parts of the famous â€œRoad Apple Trail. It rolls through the Pinon Pines and is very single speed friendly. The first 3 miles (Kinsey Trail) and the last 3 miles (Rigor Mortis Trail) are parallel to each other but are actually separate trails. There are lots of spur trails so use you odometer to watch for the turns you want to take.
From the trailhead, ride through opening in the pipe fence and stay on the trail to the right (Kinsey Trail). @ 2.3 miles, (waypoint A) ignore spur on the left (you will turn here coming back). @ In aprox 50 yards (waypoint B) take the fork left. @ 3.7 miles, (waypoint C) take the fork to the right and start down the whoops! @ 4.2 miles, head left on the dirt road for aprox 100 yards and look for the trail on the right (waypoint D). @ 5.4 miles, take the right fork (waypoint E). @ 6.6 miles you will arrive back at waypoint B and turn left. You will be backtracking on this section for aprox 50 yards and turn onto the spur on your right (waypoint A). Follow this parallel trail (Rigor Mortis Trail) back to trailhead @ 9.0 miles. These trails are usually rideable most of the winter months.
