      Established by the United States Army as an installation offering protection for miners and settlers in 1866, the now deserted Fort Bayard is truly a sight worth seeing. While many of the original buildings have been demolished, the some houses and barracks remain intact. Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2004, the trail networks heading north from the fort offer some of the most enjoyable mountain biking in Grant County.

      Riders are encouraged to ride to the Big Tree from either the Dragonfly Trailhead (sign posted from Hwy 180) or from the Cemetery Trailhead within Fort Bayard. Be warned however, that while the Dragonfly Loop and the Big Tree Trail offer excellent riding, both trails are regularly hiked. Riders please be ready to dismount and make way for hikers along any Fort Bayard trails.
      In drier months, trail conditions are often sandy and loose, making riding difficult and often causing excess trail damage. Trails are ideal after light moisture. Riding in this system is often exposed, so expect to need plenty of water and sun protection.
