White Mesa is one of the most bizarre, lovely, and fun places to ride in New Mexico. The trail is a serpentine network of rocky outcrops, smooth singletrack, and exotic colors. Here the geology of the land is on full display. While the loop may take a seasoned rider under an hour to complete, the drive out to this trail system is worth the effort. Best ridden in late fall, winter, spring to avoid excessive heat or lightning.
In order to reach White Mesa, you must head south on I-25 to Bernalillo where you will take highway 550 Northwest until you see the BLM sign for the White Mesa Bike Trails. Trust us, it's worth a look.
