Overview

May be closed during summer months due to fire danger - check with the ranger station for details.

Description

Starting from the Tunnel Canyon, the West Ridge has 3 significant climbs mixed with some fast twisting singletrack in the trees before plunging back down into Otero Canyon. The climbs are characterized by loose terrain that either needs to be avoided or ridden smoothly to maintain traction. There are also a handful of limestone ledges to negotiate along with the occasional rock garden.

The top of the ridge offers a twisting track among the pion trees with a rock garden here and there before you hit the KAFB withdrawal boundary. From here the trail drops with tight turns and several rocks to jump or avoid and a log to ride. The last bit will leave a smile on anyones face.
