Taos is home to a wonderful blend of Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo Culture… and some outstanding mountain biking, especially on the South Boundary Trail.  Although a shuttle, the 23-mile route still includes a touch over 2,000 feet of climbing.  If all that climbing and XC riding is not to your liking, just ask Jeff from Really Fun Adventures to drop you off at Garcia Park rather than the far end.  You’ll still get gorgeous bench cut through the aspens, but the worst of the climbing is eliminated and you’ll be fresh for the final plummet, which is fast and furious.
