Features -none-

This trail is on Glorieta Camps land. There is no public access June 3 - August 11. Riders must sign a waiver and get a wristband at the front office before riding.

Office Hours: Monday - Friday, 8am-5pm, weekend office hours vary.

Description

To access Secret Trail, you'll need to pedal/push up Ghost Town or shuttle up County Road 63A to Glorieta Baldy Road (375). After taking in the views from atop the 10,300-foot Glorieta Baldy, drop in.

The top section is loose, fast and super fun. While there aren't many big embedded rocks, the loose cobbles and moon-dusty soil create a unique challenge. Very steep, switchback-laden sections are broken up by flatter jaunts through meadows.

Eventually, you'll reach the bottom of the trail and the option to either descend the road back into town or pedal to Ruiz Canyon.

Trail needs some love after the rains, lots of pines cones and downed trees to avoid, frequently stopped to ensure I was still in the trail. 2.8mi
