      Located at the foot of the Gila National Forest only four miles out of Silver City lies the Little Walnut Trail Network. Made up of 11 miles of non-motorized fun fast single track, the network is dissected by the mighty Continental Divide trail (CDT), offering connectors to both Bear Mountain and the Pinos Altos range. Start and finish your ride or hike at the Picnic Ground where you'll find picnic sites, seasonal water and toilet facilities. The picnic ground closes year round at dusk.
      Moving north through the network towards the CDT you'll find fun cross country style riding of medium difficulty, often times in some welcome shade. In the drier seasons, expect rocky, loose sandy conditions. Be warned that in the winter and monsoon seasons, trails can be muddy and riders are encouraged to ride in other trail networks.

      If gravity/all mountain riding takes your bait, check out both the 'mountain loop' or the 'angel loop' around Eighty Mountain and Gomez Peak respectively. Should you attempt these loops at speed, long travel, full face helmets and protective pads are advisable.
