      Located at 7,000' at the base of the southernmost Rockies, Santa Fe is a world-renowned travel destination for its art, food, architecture, and excellent climate. While most visit for the aforementioned attractions, Santa Fe boasts excellent year-round mountain biking for every level of rider. The terrain is diverse, going from open desert panoramas to alpine singletrack.

      Santa Fe riding is broken into five main riding areas:

      La Tierra Trails: fast desert XC terrain and host to dirt jumping track.
      Dale Ball Trails: Urban foothill trails with a mix of XC and all mountain riding.
      Galisteo Basin Preserve: Scenic XC trails located on a private conservation trust.
      Santa Fe Mountains: Alpine and forested all mountain trails reaching 12,000'.
      Arroyo Hondo: Rugged backcountry routes through ponderosa forests.

      The area also includes Glorieta Camps, which hosts the Big Mountain Enduro each spring.
