Lucero Wash (Radium Springs Trail) - TRAIL

Lucero Wash (Radium Springs Trail) - Trail, Radium Springs/Fort Selden, Mexico

Mostly single track with a few connections made by jeep trail. There is as little or as much trail as the average rider would want to do. Some of the trail is almost hidden, so it would be worth your while to find someone who knows the trail to show you around.

This trail, unfortunately is closed. NMSU aparently does not beleive in sharing the land they are using. There are so few good trails around here it's a shame they're being closed

This is undoubtedly the best trail in southern New Mexico. Rolling Hills and a lot of climbing that give beautiful views, while offering the challenge of miles and miles of trail. Technically, fairly easy except for the hills of which there are a lot. Be prepared to climb some 1800 feet (total of the ups). There are some 12 miles of trail plus many more 4wd roads. It should be noted that this area is technically closed due to the university security policy, however it has been determined by some in the know that the university is concerned with areas to the north on which cattle are grazed and there is a kind of "don't ask, don't tell" policy towards those "unproductive" areas to the south, which there is little potential for research.

This trail is a lot of fun. I rode this over the weekend with a group of El Paso/Las Cruses riders, we had a ball. There is a lot of climbing the first half, with some fun downhills mixed in.

Customer Service

Take the big loop. The views from the top are unbelievable. If you haven't ridden it before, find someone to go with you so you don't get lost.

Similar Products Used: I've heard Dona Ana's are great, but I still haven't ridden them. Redd Road and Franklin Mountian State Park are great rides in El Paso.

This was a fun trail. Supposedly it is closed now, thanks to NMSU. It was a lot up easy up and downs, with cool fossilbeds here and there.
