Overview

Typically snowy from November through February. May be closed during the summer months due to fire danger, check with the ranger station for details. Relatively heavy hiker traffic.

Description

South Faulty begins at the end of Bill Spring Trail. After a few hundred feet, Oso Corredor Trail heads west and South Faulty continues south.

The trail contours along the steep mountainside with rock gardens, but only a couple of rocky steps. Eventually, the trail hits the wilderness boundary.

Now this trail is what mountain biking is all about! The trail does tend to get muddy and tore up from the equestrian riders but still super fun to ride. South Faulty is a hidden gem in the Albuquerque area and a great trail to ride if you want to avoid the crowds out in the Foothills or Tijeras trails. Aug 1, 2015
