You start at the Tunnel trailhead, this is an easier route to Otero canyon than through tunnel / west ridge. From Tunnel it is a steady climb most of the 2+ miles. little flat or downhill. Steady incline, nothing too steep, or loose. The challenges are some "step rocks" going up. sometimes, there is a way around, sometimes not. Either way you would get off the bike, up the step and back on. No real hike-a-bike sections for intermediate and up riders.
