    Ruidoso dirt

    I am going to be in town for a few days in July, and was hoping to sample some of the local trails while I'm there. Does anyone have any suggestions for must-do trails within reasonable driving distance from Riudoso?

    I prefer technical and steep descents, and am willing to climb a lot to get to good dirt. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Please PM me if you aren't comfortable posting your favorites.

    Thanks much.

    edit: D'oh! I didn't read the sticky first. I'll see what's already out there before bugging the locals.

    The Rim Trail in Cloudcroft is pretty good, and I hear there is a descent from said trail that goes all the way down to Alamogordo, but haven't ridden it so I can't comment on its quality.

    There is also a downhill trail in Cloudcroft, races were held there a week or so ago, I'm guessing that would have some steep and techy.

    There is a bike shop in Cloudcroft, www.highaltitude.org , maybe they could help you out.

    Edit: website looks pretty useless, here's the address and phone#

    High Altitude
    310 Burro Ave
    Cloudcroft, NM 88317

    Thanks, Andy! The website was indeed lame, but did have a buried course map from the race last month. That's probably a good place to get started.

    BTW - I should offer some reciprocation: if anyone is traveling to Phoenix, Moab, SW Utah, Southern California or the SF bay area, I can hook you up with some sweet riding. I've ridden a lot in all those places, and have worthwhile info.

    Thanks again,
    Gus

They are hard to navigate ..DH style, they are in the middle o nowhere.. There are some good trails in Ruidoso as well.. Good luck..
