Description

It's mostly singletrack, but it opens into a doubletrack on the downstream side of the Placitas Open Space gate. There is another gate just upstream of the junction with Powerline Trail. Please remember to close all gates behind you in this area.

This is a very easy climb up the arroyo towards the pipeline, but some loose sand can make it feel like a bit of a chore in spots. It's a fun blast back down, and if you're pedaling hard you can rocket along at 25-30 miles per hour for a minute or so!
