Trail near La Cienega,  area, 
“Technical singletrack best ridden downhill”

Getting There     GPX File     Print
1.52.4 milesKilometers 55’17 m Ascent 6,060’1,847 m High 6% Avg Grade (3°)
Singletrack Type -396’-121 m Descent 5,720’1,743 m Low 13% Max Grade (7°)
Description
This is the most technically interesting of the area trails and a worthy conclusion to a ride in the Cerillos Hills Escalante, Mirador, Coyote, Upper Elkins Canyon Trails network.

Horse traffic seems a bit less in this area due to the steepness and rockiness. Watch for hikers.

There are rock gardens and a few off-camber rocky sections with steep cross slopes. In the final section of narrow canyon are a couple of sections of bedrock pavement.

Once out of the canyon, ride about 1/2-mile back to the parking area to complete the loop.
