Overview

Numerous, rocky ascents and descents make for a challenging ride with stunning vistas.

Description

This section of the CDT: Burro Peak TH (NM Sec. 6) is typically accessed by a trailhead and parking area just off of Red Rock Road. This one takes a commute, but the payoff is worth it.

Head out of Silver City on Highway 180 headed toward Cliff, NM. About 10-12 miles out, you'll see a sign for Mingus Valley Road/Red Rock Road. Take this road and follow it until the pavement ends and you eventually turn onto Red Rock Road.

From there, find the parking area and begin your ride. This ride starts off as a deceptively simple and gentle uphill singletrack trail. Do not be fooled however. About halfway through, you'll encounter brutal, slick, and rocky ascents and descents that are best handled with care and skill.

After about 6.5 miles, you'll arrive at the Tyrone Road trailhead and can ride back or continue south on the CDT: Burro Peak TH (NM Sec. 6) and even bomb down on the Deadman Loop before returning to the parking area or meeting up with a shuttle.
