Description

What a sweet trail! Made my trip to Ojo awesome. A local called it the "Outer Limits" and showed me where it is drawn on a topo map. I found it easily from the connector loops off of the Rincon Trail. Well-worn from riders, but loose and dry in some areas, it starts with a bang of a climb followed by a fast descent along a ridge.

More climbs and short drops weaving in and out of dry arroyos, up some steep and rocky hills each rewarded with a rippin' downhill. The views of the desert and mountains in the distance are incredible! There wasn't any water and it was hot when I was riding early in the morning before 11:00 a.m., mid-July.

I rode clockwise but the other way would be fun and might be better if you want longer downhills. An adventurous ride, not a real long trail, but the climbs make it feel like it is, especially with the desert heat.

Good ride. Lots of lose rocks in the uphills making the climbs challenging. At times the trail is a little difficult to follow.

I rode CCW. This trail might be better if were ridden more. Very soft and MANY junctions that are not on MTB or marked. Would not ride again.
