Normally shuttled from Pajarito Ski Area but can be done as a loop up Quemazon & Pipeline, down Guaje Ridge & Cabra, and Perimeter back to town. From Pajarito Ski Area to the trail head via Pipeline is fairly steep and will take 30-60 minutes but once on Guaje Ridge it is mostly descending. Awesome trail but gets a lot of locust thorn bushes once the monsoons start. Best time to ride it is late May/early June after the trail is used for the Jemez Mountain Run.

A little powdery and trenched from motorcycle traffic in the switchbacks near the bottom of the ridge before it flattens out.
