    Abiquiu High Desert Terrain

    Conditions for fatbike riding in this area are primo currently with the lack of snow in the Southwest. Been exploring the area via Forest Service trails and access points and pretty stoked with what we've found. This is one route that I'd recommend for intermediate riders

    Nice. The potential for FB exploring in the Espanola Valley area is pretty amazing. Tons of public land. Check out the badlands east of Alcalde for more options.

    Sorry to dig up an old thread, but my wife and I are heading down to Abiquiu soon. Any new trail developments in the area? Going to check out Ghost Ranch while we're there, of course, but want to get in some riding.

    Looks like there is relatively little in the way of official trails in the area, but plenty of old two tracks that might be fun?

    Any information would be appreciated.

    Check out Cerro Pedernal. It has been years since I was up there and that was on a hike, so I have no idea what it would be like on a bike (or even if riding is possible). But it is a very special place.

    I don't know about new trails but there are a whole lot of old trails in the Carson National Forest north of Abiquiu, including the Continental Divide Trail which crosses Hwy 84 just north of Echo Amphitheatre. You can also access the CDT north of El Rito by taking County Road 280 out of El Rito.

    There are also a whole lot of trails in the Jemez Mountains just south of Abiquiu. You can get there taking County Road 189 out of Abiquiu.
