This is my home trail. I love it. It changes with the seasons. If you ever have a chance to ride this trail when it's snowing, it will turn an average ride into something epic. .....ok not always, but sometimes, and only if you catch it right. On the higher trails near the wilderness, it gets a bit more technical. On the lower trails, especially near High Desert, be prepared for lots of walkers and dogs without a leash. I probably ride this trail three times a week. My advice is to ride early or late to avoide the traffic.

If you're looking for a technical ride, start at Montgomery and stay to the right. Ride to the tram and follow the same trail back. If you are a weekend warrior, stay on the lower trails and give way to the joggers.

365 is decent trail to get a good sweat worked up...it runs laterally next to Sandia Mtns. It is a nice single track that is easy to follow. There are a few rollers to enjoy and a 3 dry river crossings to navigate. The trail can become loose in the summer months due to high foot and bike traffic and the dry weather.
You can access a multitude of trails that sprawl across the Elana Galogos area. If you start at Embudito Trailhead travel north to the Water tanks and back it is approximately 12 miles (if you saty on 365). The northern section has some technical climbing and rock gardens that will challange the beginer and intermidate rider.
Its the desert; rattler snakes are common.

this was an awesome trail. the northern section was pretty technical, but they butchered it. all of the obstacles were removed. the trail is a joke now. luckily the the trail approching the tram is intact, but for how long? very sad thing, because little is left as far as technical trails in the foothills.

This is just a great all-round trail - something form everyone. If you want to ride easy single track stay on the south half, the north half can get interesting in many places. Several hard climbs and steep descents with large rocks and boulders w/ a few dropoffs for fun!

Customer Service

start at the Embudito trailhead and go north to the tram station and return (take as many side trails as you wish, particularly #'s 305 & 230).

Excellent intown trail that can be ridden all year long. I ride everytime I'm in town (every x-mas). It's fairly flat except for a tricky arroyo crossing. Many of the corners are blind so be aware of oncoming riders. I try to make a lot of noise as I go around these corners.

Customer Service

Start at Embudito parking lot and ride to Tramway and back. If you park at the Gallegos parking lot, you have to pay and start in the middle.

I ride this trail often because it is right outside my back door. it offers something for every level of rider and is great when the snow keeps you out of the mountains.

Customer Service

I recommend starting at the Embudito trailhead located at the top of Montgomery. Park here. My favorite route is to folow the trail out past the rock road to where it intersects with 305A. i take 305A to the parking lot in the middle the cut back up on the double track (141)turn right and make the next left taking 342 around past the Pino Trailhead. For a fun fast route back when you come off 342 take 341 about 200 yards to 230A which heads down a great singletrak to 365 which you take left all the way back to your car. A technical challenging route is to take 230 out north once you get off 342. this goes to the water towerrs and is rocky and a lot of fun.

This same trail system expand from Menaul to Copper off of Tramway. Starting at either of these tralheads is fine. I prefer this sytem because it has more climbing and singletrak that runs along the edge.

Boulders, Snakes, roadrunners, and plenty of places to chill and check out Albuquerque.

Customer Service

Start at The Montgomery trilhead and take 365 north. My only advice is explore as much as you can. And ofcourse if you start on the south side you got a totally narly downhill waiting for you on your return trip.

follow 365 N.cut over to any other trails,they interconnect,expect skull gardens,sandy bottom washes,loose over hardpack,short quick climbs,twisting decents,sharp 120'turns,this is a great singletrack for early am or late pm rides.Have spent up to 5hrs riding these trails and the conditions change weekly due to our weather(rain,flash floods ect.)Lot of blind turns, so keep aware of on coming and slower riders,also runners & hikers-very few-AND dont forget to show trail courtesy OK !!!!!

Customer Service

The first two or three miles of the trail real fast. It is single with lots of short climbs and real short,quick downhills. There are lots of switch backs that have nothing but sand and will rip you bike right out form under you. The locals know and love this place, so expect lots of traffic in the first 2 to 4 miles. Watch for little cactus that will pop you tire and ruin you your ride. I would take three extra tubes just incase. It is hot, so patching a tube won't be much fun. In the northern part there is less traffic and it gets a little more technical. The ride back to your car always seems to go really fast so watch out for old people and their dogs.
