Bicycling opportunities in and around Santa Fe National Forest are plentiful. Except for designated Wilderness, most trails are open and many forest roads also work well for mountain biking.

For street riding, there are some very scenic roads and byways. However, what makes these roads scenic, steep mountain roads with curves leading to grand and vistas, also makes the roads dangerous to bicyclists.

The roads may be narrow in places, even if they are state highways. The most popular areas for bicyclists are the foothills east of Santa Fe, trails near Los Alamos, and the south Jemez area.

If you pack something in, please pack it out.
