Trail Description
About this trail
Tucked away in rugged and scenic country southwest of the community of San Ysidro, New Mexico, is the White Mesa Bike Trails Area. Just to the west is the newly designated Ojito Wilderness. Both sites are a short distance from U.S. 550. This region is known for its geological, cultural and paleontological resources, as well as for its scenic qualities. The bike trail crosses a landscape of spectacular beauty and exceptional geology, meandering through the Pueblo of Zia, State of New Mexico, and public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM has obtained rights-of-way from the Pueblo and the State to provide this biking experience. Although the Trails have been developed primarily for mountain biking, hikers are welcome on the entire trail system, and one segment is also open to equestrian use.

Review: Really fun ride. I'm glad I drove out there. I rode clockwise following the number system. Very well marked and the ridge was a blast. The only con is the 4 miles of heavy washboard road to get to the trail. But it's worth it.

Review: An Amazing Trail. Tucked away and very off the beaten path. You will have to make a deliberate trip to make this trail. It is worth it! A great trail with plenty of flow, climbs, fast descents and hair raising edge of the world riding. Great Trail!

Review: This trail is 5 stars for its setting, but I would consider the riding 4 stars. You can pick your lines in some areas, which opens up some fun free-riding. Trails could use better marking as choosing direction on trails impacts the ride quality. Unique adventure any true MTB should experience.
