    Santa Fe NM

    I may be headed down that way to hang in Santa Fe for a few days. Is there any good riding in the Santa Fe area, or somewhere along the way in NM?

    I have no idea about the riding down there.
    Thanks.

    Dale Ball trails just east of downtown are pretty fun. (Rideable from town). Google 'em for a map.

    the locals are really cool down there, go post in the New Mexico subforum and you'll probably have people willing to guide you on fun rides

    YMMV but Rio En Medio is one of the best trails I've ever ridden

    The Windsor trail is fun. Get a ride to the top past the ski area and ride all the way down...Lots of stream crossings, all in the trees, nice and cool and a good long downhill singletrack. Watch for cows on the trail, hitting one SUCKS!

    Be aware there are several fires and a lot of space is in danger of being CLOSED due to the dry high fire hazard conditions. Check the news and forest service sites before driving (or riding) to the trailheads.

    That said, if they are open, head to Los Alamos. Lots of awesome trails at high altitude, including some freeriding at the ski area.

    One of the fires is near Los Alamos but I think it's far enough away.

    Pretty much what everyone else has said seems spot on. If you're headed that way through Taos, the South Boundary is pretty darned fun too.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.
