Cibola National Forest, Albuquerque Reviews

  • The most beautiful views of nature you'll ever find the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city cell phones computers and road rage. The family likes to just go out there and just talk Grill some food find a nice beautiful spot and relax that's the best part of it you can actually relax and in this day in age that is a rarity and it's worth traveling for. I would give Cibolo National Forest 10 Stars if I could but kind of seems like you're writing a business and this is just nature at its finest if you're from New Mexico get out there if you're not from New Mexico get on down here beautiful.

  • 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.

  • Great hiking, mountain biking, horse back riding and we'll maintained trails. Good mixed usage trails aka some hiking only trails. Great for dogs on a leash. A little crowded due to it's proximity to the city. Multiple parking area but some are pay parking. DI NOT leave valuables in your car. The broken glass in all the parking lots should be evidence of that. Don't leave your car overnight in a little if you can avoid it. Bring water and a snack. It's dry up here. Cell coverage usually works. Not too much wildlife but you never know.

  • Roads could be better maintained. Overnight pitch a tent kinda place with restrooms No food or drinks as far as the eye can see so pack it in and out is best. Been rather dry lately so observe fire safety.

  • Get back to nature in the Cibola National Forest. The foresty services have developed hundreds of miles of groomed trails for every level of hiking ability. Take in magnificent views and stumble across wildlife that resides in the forest. Water and sturdy footwear is recommended.
