I would define this as a nice non technical and flat dessert trail. It would be great for beginners or families. Even if you are used to singletrack, the view is magnificent and definitely worth the trouble of gearing up for the ride. The trail runs parallel to the river so when you are done you just go back. There is no way you can get lost.

Based on the reviews here, I rode this trail for the first time after a meeting on a business trip. Great easy biking with great views and no traffic. I only ran into one other person three miles into the ride. Definately worth the ride.

I should also add that the scenery is awesome. The gorge rises and falls between 0 and 1000 feet along the trails edge.

Awesome views, easy, and great for out- of -towners getting used to the altitude. We took our 5 year old who loved it as much as we did. I would definitely recommend this trail mostly for the breathtaking scenery.

West Rim Trail, Round-trip
Contact: Bureau of Land Management, Taos, (505) 758-8851

The West Rim Trail tracks along the top of the 700-foot-deep Ro Grande Gorge near Taos. Start from the rest area on U.S. 64 just west of the Ro Grande Gorge Bridge. Suitable for beginners, the trail presents only minor ups and downs. Much of it is relatively smooth, but loose basalt rocks will rattle wheels in places. There is no shade; ride early during warm weather. The trail ends at a parking spot one-half mile north of N.M. 567. (Round-trip,18 miles)

Option: Continue to the road and into the gorge. Paved on top, N.M. 567 is maintained but wash-boarded gravel from the rim to Taos Junction Bridge, a winding three miles and 700 feet down and back up. Get water at the bridge campground.
