A gorgeous trail that is certainly among the better trails in the region, too bad it's so short!

Description

The Lower Big Tesuque Trail is by far the most popular section with mountain bikers of the Big Tesuque Trail. This trail is actually ridden more as a downhill after climbs up Pacheco Canyon Road #102 or the Winsor Trail. Many do ride up, however.

As a ride up, it's a nice, aerobic climb that winds its way through pine forest. This trail has some technical features, berms created by downhillers and other interesting elements to take your mind off the climb. The landscape seems to get prettier and prettier as you go along as you'll start to enter the big aspen glade. You'll know you are almost finished when you hit the creek and a small waterfall on your right-hand side.

A steep climb out to the road and you're finished. From here, do ride down the way you came as this is a very fun downhill (maybe only outmatched by the upper portion of the Winsor Trail). If you keep going up to the Upper Big Tesuque, get ready for the pain!
