Overview

This is a loop that starts and ends in the parking lot of Pajarito Ski Area. It begins by climbing up the east side of the ski hill on fairly technical singletrack. It then crosses over the top by several of the ski lifts and the snow making pond, then descends the west side of the ski hill to Camp May picnic area and on back to the parking lot where you started.

Description

You start the trail behind the cat shack to the east of the main lodge and begin climbing up a fairly good singletrack toward the top of the Spruce Lift. About halfway up, the trail turns fairly narrow and technical. Above the Spruce lift you join a doubletrack for a short period before the trail resumes at the top of the Aspen Lift.

The downhill portion begins here and turns very technical in 1 mile as you enter the burn area on the northwest side of the hill. As you exit the burn area the downhill gets better and descends around the south side of camp may. Between there and the parking lot, the trail becomes technical again, then you reach the end in 1/4 mile.
