Trail shared by Christopher Bare

The only way to ride your bike uphill at Angel Fire.

Christopher Bare

Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed

Features -none-

Subject to the hours of the Angel Fire Resort. One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Need to Know

This is an uphill trail only and it accommodates hikers so proceed with caution. Additionally, the trail does not receive the grooming that the downhill trails get, so it is not in as good as shape.

Description

This is a combined hiking and uphill-only cross country mountain biking trail and your only option for riding a bike up the mountain at Angel Fire. Start in the upper parking area near the dirt jump/skills tracks and you'll see signs that guide you up the mountain along the singletrack.

Simply follow the signs until the bike trail diverges from the hiking trail a couple of miles up the mountain. Continue until the trail ends at the intersection with the Lemonade trail under the lift. At this point, you can bomb down any of the other trails at this intersection.
