“A long singletrack climb or descent through the ski area with several technical challenges.”
Lee Brinckerhoff on May 31, 2013
Getting There     GPX File     Print
7.4 Miles Singletrack Type 1,881’ Ascent -288’ Descent 8,676’ Low 10,269’ High
Description
The lower bit of the trail is narrow, running through the grassy areas of the ski runs. As you climb you'll end up in the trees at the northern edge of the ski area where you'll be faced with many rock steps and roots. Higher up the trees change to aspens in spots and could be wonderful in the fall. Finally you come more out onto the ski runs again near the top. Once on top there are restrooms and a restaurant as well as spectacular views of Albuquerque from the crest.
