    Gallup area trails

    I've been daydreaming road trip ideas over the past couple of weeks and have a few questions about the Gallup area. I'm finding plenty of information about the High Desert & Zuni areas and I also came across a small loop east of town called Hogback.

    What I'm wondering about is the huge network of suspiciously twisty lines I see on the Strava heat map but can't find any information about otherwise. They're east of town & north of I40 and look like they bump right up against Hogback. Are these bike trails? I've always heard there was a ton of riding in the area and these mystery trails would certainly make up a huge portion if they're what they appear to be on the heat map.

    The area you refer to is mostly off limits currently, although Gallup Trails is working with the present landowner and we hope to gain access eventually.

    It's complicated, currently waiting for the green light after some mine shaft remediation in the area is completed. The owner is in Chicago, has a local manager who works quite closely with us. The future looks good but progress is slow.

    Seems like it should be recommended that strava users who ride in that area make their rides private.

    I agree, make that point often to the local riders.

    Many want to be famous.
