This is a fast wide singletrack that follows the railroad tracks to Lamy and the Galisteo Basin.

Overview

Features: -none-
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This trail starts at the parking lot on the south side of Rabbit Road at the end of the paved Santa Fe Rail Trail. It follows the tracks all the way past Eldorado to Highway 285 where the tracks cross the road.

It's a good fast training ride with very little climbing, and great for taking beginners on. There is really nothing technical on this ride, but the views can be great.

Can just do 2 or 3 miles at lunch hour, but find the scenery more interesting south of Rabbit Road better than the paved in-town section of the trail 2.5mi — 1h 00m

Did this out and back, great way to acclimatize. Bottom half or third is single trac along the RR but the whole thing is fast and fun 24mi
