War Games is a very technical, very short trail that drops off the side of the Sandia Crest road just below the Capulin snow play area. It begins with a couple of small drops before splitting into multiple lines, each one featuring very technical sections of steep, rough rock faces and drops. The lines then reintersect just above NM165 where you will finish the trail off with a couple very fun jumps, berms and a final step down drop. Most people who shuttle the DH trails use this as the pick up point for another lap.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

Disclaimer

Very techincal, look before you leap.
