I've ridden these trails several times over the years and never found them to be in horrid shape. They can get dusty after a dry spell and the 'cycles can tear up sections on occasion. Still, they're a fun enough ride that I'll make the trip out there on the odd occasion.

I have to say that we might be a little spoiled here in Albuquerque. Yup, the ATV's have done some damage, and yup, they continue to ride in this trail netwrok. But people - remember that we get these hundred miles of trails 15-mins from work!!!! The ATV's can't ruin the dump road climb, they haven't found some of the singletrack jewels strewn out through this place....but they have found lower pine, etc and all of the original fast motorcylce track. My point is that this place still rocks, and we really need to appreciate it. Me and my crew always adds at least something to Cedro on everyride out there. Stacking rocks or trees at singletrack heads, pinching down lower pine, etc. Yeah, Trail Partners is lame - they put up signs this summer telling the ATV's where to go. So do you own part and keep riding here, and fix the trail when you ride. I still think this is a great network, and there is no way anyone can justify calling this a 2. 5 all the way just for what we have. Imagine an Abq w/o it....and otero. Yeeeech,

This trail system has much to offer. 5-hills road is the best put-in point for the eastern "wilderness." And it is sad to say, each time I go up there, it is becoming more and more a wilderness - ruled by some little roto-tiller type vehicles. I plan to go back and clear out some of the carnage soon. To whoever placed all those rocks at Otero canyon, I'd like to say THANK YOU. Your efforts have been appreciated. I plan to do the same for "cedidro" soon. THE SECTION BETWEEN PINON TR. AND JUAN'S TR. NEEDS WORK BAD! That trail has awesome potential. Some day we will live to see and enjoy it.

used to live in the 'burque and rode this trail about 3 times a month. there are some absolutely wicked climbs here and some pretty fun downhills. not a great level of technicality, but still great single-track. do NOT ride here after a rain - the clay will have you dragging your bike with the wheels completely locked up. best (as always) to ride with a friend. there are probably 20-30 miles of singletrack and some big wide fire roads coming back down from the firetower. consider yourself blessed to be living in NM with all of that MTB'ing!!!

Customer Service

like to start at the top of the dirt road just go nuts!

something for everyone, ranging from easy forest service roads (from good to abandoned) to amazingly fast singletrack to very technical, rock climbs & descents.

Customer Service

Just an update to trail information. There is approximately 100 miles of trail combining singletrack, doubletrack, forest service roads.

I"v been riding & racing in this area for over 10 yrs now & still have yet to ride all the trails! Some of my favorites are Lone pine, Chamisimo canyon, coyote, Mighty mule. Get a map as its easy to get lost W/ many of the hills with no disernable landmarks except cedro peak w/ its towers.

Customer Service

There is know recomended route just about any trail is going to be fun! Two wheel drive in albq has an awesome map of the area! And there is camping in the area!

Slickster   [Jul 11, 1999]

There are so many different trails in this area that it is very easy to get more then a little confused. But it is fantastic area to ride. Something for everyone of almost any ability w/ both jeep road & single track. Carry plenty of water, especially during the summer months, becuase "thar aint none" except the sweat on your arm. Beautiful country though.

Customer Service

None. Get A trail or topo map, find a trail and enjoy the ride.

Similar Products Used: Otero. Try starting from the PINE FLAT picnic area or FIVE HILLS RD by I-40.

Everything on Cedro is awesome, the bad thing about it is that there use to be a trail map at one of the trail heads, and they took it down. Lucky for me, I memorized the map before they took it down. There are some super technical trails, and some nice and easy trails for beginers. I don't care how many times I ride these trails, I can never get enough of them.

These trails have everything a person could want. There are nice smooth up hills through grassy fields, impossibly steep and technical up/down hills, rocks, bridges, drops, wild life, forrest roads, and single track. Just buy a map, plan a route and go play. My friends and I have been out for 6 to 7 hours and the only ground we traveled twice was in the parking lot. Take water, food, and a GPS if you are going for a long ride. There are so many trails getting lost is quite possible.

Customer Service

Park at Forrest Road 462 (one mile from the Ranger Station on the left). Go up the dirt road and make your first right into the woods. Continue right until you are at the top of the ridge, this will be painfully obvious. Go left to go down Coyote or left then right to go down 462. Go straight across to hit Rattlesnake and Lone Pine. Go right to hit the 5 Hills. Get a map at the ranger station you can spend days out here.
