Heading down from Drop In Lower, Upper Otero is one of the funnest downhills you can find in the east mountains of Albuquerque. This incredibly fast, flowy portion of trail is a smooth piece of singletrack goodness that is dotted with jumps for good measure. The nice thing about Otero Upper is that not too many hikers get this high on the trail, so you can let it hang out a little more than on the lower section. Still, care should be taken as this trail is for everyone, and bikers do like to climb up this way as well. Enjoy!
