Steep and technical climb up to the top of Pajarito Ski Area. This is best ridden up because there are numerous downhill options once you get there. The most popular way down is Aspenola but you can also go off the back side onto Pajarito Canyon Trail and descent 3000' feet to Los Alamos.

 If you brought a downhill bike, don't bother. This trail will make you yawn and pedal (choose which is worse for you Wink ).
