Nestled in the Cibola National Forest are 25+ miles of singletrack trail for mountain biking, running and hiking.
Just a mere 15 miles from Gallup, the transition from the High Desert Trail System to the Zuni Mountain Trail System is quite polar. With 800ft of elevation gain, the landscape changes dramatically to ponderosa pine forest and meadow grasses. you might begin to wonder if you have just skipped over to Colorado, but you're really in a great, accessible and never crowded trail system in NM!
Trailhead Location: Hilso Trailhead is on Hwy 400 (accessible from Exit 33 on I-40)
