    I visited ABQ this weekend and used the trails at Elena Gallegos park. I don't recall seeing these mentioned in this forum. Do you guys use a different name for them here? Thanks.

    It's north of Cedro Peak. It parallels mighty mule but on the north side of the service road. My second pick is in that same area but I can't remember the name. If you take mighty mule til it ends (east side) and cross the two track, the trail that picks up from there. It's like a slalom course. Too much fun.

    Downhilling Otero Canyon and Turkey Trot is a blast. Malpais Stout from La Cumbre for the brew!

    This poll is a trick, cuz who can pick just 2 singletracks close to ABQ and who the hell can pick a single post-ride beer??


    Although, Notaknob's Rio en Medio Ale (featuring wild hops, hand-harvested by drunken Bandoleros along the Rio en Medio trail) has to be one of the best. Plus it's supplied free.

    Went to find your Coyote Trail Saturday and got three different directions from three different people, all correct in their own way. Went down when I should have been going up. Went up when I should have been going down. Eventually found my way to the big intersection at the top and decided to hit Mighty Mule which turned out to be Delbert (the engineer with the curled-up tie?). Delbert appears to have been re-routed and is loose, loose, loose with an abundance of little dangerous stumps cut off about 4 inches above grade. It ended at the power line which was AWESOME! Would have been even better if I'd remembered my shoes; rode the whole day in Teva sandals on clipless pedals. So where is Coyote?

    You got to the big intersection and it sounds like you went right. left would take you directly to the upper end of Coyote.

    Found a better map today so it looks like that's exactly right. Of course if I'd known that Saturday, I wouldn't have accidentally found Powerline. Now I have more reasons to go back and try again. Thanks.
