    Gallup Trail conditions

    Thinking of hitting the Gallup area for riding in the next couple weeks with the warmer weather. Would the High Desert Trail network be in shape to ride?

    Thanks, Bill

    I dint have direct knowledge but folks have been checking in on mtbproject for the high desert stuff. I imagine the zunis are not yet ready.

    I rode DHT yesterday on my drive in to ABQ. The trail itself is fairly dry. There was only one section where I walked the bike to avoid laying down ruts. I also saw a few remnants of snow. The bad part is horse riders have been out when the trail was too soft. More than a few sections are pretty trashed and the damage extends far. Sure takes some of the fun out of an awesome trail.
    The only trace I leave behind is tire marks.

    The Zuni Mountains are in full runoff mode, water everywhere this year. The lake has water in it... and there is still lots of snow. If this keeps up I would say early April for riding dry trails, but it's still ~early March so who knows?

    High Desert will dry a lot in the next week. YCC trail crews will be out in April.
