Cibola National Forest, Albuquerque Reviews

  • It's a walking trail, mountain bike trail, and horseback riding trail. Its right at the edge of some beautiful mountain peaks. At the time of my visit there were quite a few mountain bikers but they were all respectful and we tried to keep out of their way so they don't lose momentum. They appreciated the effort. Great area to explore.

  • Always a great experience with family and friends! There are multiple paths to take if you have the suspencion there are some nice trails to test out. Then there are also paved ways as well. There are many recreational stops along the way and restrooms. There are also many hiking and biking trails to the top of the mountain. Highly recommend!

  • A magical place that would be much better if the trams were more frequent. The eateries are pretty cool places too. Nice to escape summer heat due to the elevations and a place for skiing in winter.

  • Amazing trails!! Killer views and well organized trail system. Great way to spend the day with your kid(s)

  • Nice views and trails. Be aware the roads can be very technical at times. It was a bit dicey even with a Jeep Wrangler's clearance.
