High Desert Trail System
The High Desert Trail System, located just north of Gallup, is designed in a series of "stacked loops" narrow, single-track trails with great vistas and cap rocks. The three loops atop the mesas overlooking Gallup are named First Mesa, Second Mesa, and Third Mesa, representing the nearby Hopi Reservation and the Anasazi people that once occupied this region. Each mesa offers increasingly harder terrain to navigate and will engage riders and runners of every skill level. The trail system also includes public art to complement the landscape.
