    Glorietta Trails ---- Access Questions

    Hey NM folks..

    Going to be in the area in mid october and wondering about these trails? They are on trailforks, but also heard they are private? Whats the story there?

    Thanks in advance..

    The trails are on privately owned land, but you are allowed to ride them. When you exit the freeway (I-25) at Glorieta, go over the overpass, turn right at the stop sign and drive just about 100 yards to a small church on the left side of the road. Park there. On the left side of the church you will see a small single track and that is the public entrance into the trail system. Good to use Trailforks to get around, especially at the beginning of the system. There are trail markers, but not all of them are marked. Depending on your ability, you will find loads of great stuff in there. Have fun!

    Thank you! Any must ride trails (for reference, just got back from BC Canada and prefer steep... drops... ya know, challenging terrain)

    Chili Dog, Jagged Axe, and Janker DH are what you are looking for. Holy Mole is fun too, flow with some big optional features.

    There are loads of fun trails in there. As mentioned, Jagged Axe, Janker, and Chili Dog are classics. Janker has some real moves in there so be careful on your first run down it. Jagged Axe has an amazing rollover drop through some very narrow boulders. It is really cool. Chili Dog has a HUGE drop or two, depending on how you set them up. But also check out Broken Arrow. There are some really fun tech sections on it. As mentioned, there lots of flowy trails too. Go up Ghost Town to the Forest Service lookout tower. It is possible to ride from there to Santa Fe too. That route isn't on Trailforks however. Have fun out there!
