    Monday Cochiti?

    I'm thinking of going out to Cochiti on Monday. I'm hoping it shouldn't be too bad with the recent rain.

    Figure Dixon's at 10. Standard Bandolero pace.

    A: FR89 to Mowtown and decide to do Crosstown at that point.

    B: Media Dia to Crosstown and see how it is by then.

    C: This.

    Supposed to be thunderstorms in the afternoon so it's sorta up in the air. An earlier start might be better. I think the earliest I can get to Dixon's is 9.

    I just got back from doing 137 from Jemez Falls trailhead to Las Conchas and back. No mud anywhere, even though another storm cell had moved through about an hour earlier. Cochiti should be SWEET tomorrow.

    Have fun!

    The weather is always the wild card at Cochiti so no worries.

    9am sounds good knob. Meet at Bernalillo P&R 'round 8:15am?

    How was the ride?
    I ended up riding NFH to the tram and back. Got in about 13 miles. It was a good ride with a good pace.
    Hoewever, I wouldn't have made it in Cochiti today. I am still to sore.

    Epic day fo sho! To bad no one brought a GPS

    Shout out to the Moto Guys. Those trails are some of the best I have ever ridden. The flow is incredible. Thank you!

    Anyway, we confirmed Jemezc's prediction on the day. The trails were in prime condition after the recent rains. Would be sand bogs were almost like hard pack and super tacky...fun carving. We made our way up to the Beaver Pond and beyond eventually linking up with Crosstown/Motown/Carl Shipman. Much thanks to Rich as that map came it handy We actually ended up finding a much more scenic route on ST rather than taking the Medio Dia double track. Made for ~43 miles and 6000'+ in elevation.

    Route...

    You will notice that we did end up bushwacking a bit, but as we were nearing the road a very well defined ST appeared. If this ST ties into near where we started the Bushwack, it makes this loop almost 95% ST

    It's hard to tell from your map, but I'm wondering if the singletrack you found was Northpass? It starts near what your map is calling 'paseo del Norte', near the North end of that old forest road that leads down to the 'Trespassers will be shot' sign. Well, at least one of the 'Trespassers will be shot' signs...there seem to be numerous threat of bodily injury out there.

    Thanks..

    Yep, thats the road and the ST. Makes a much better connector for that loop than Medio Dia 2track. There used to be an old shrine at the intersection near his cabin until he successfully cut off all through traffic...including FS.
