The Tunnel Canyon Trail, shown on some maps as the Grand Enchantment Trail, is a well- known mountain biking trail to locals. Hikers and trail runners get just as much enjoyment out of the trail as mountain bikers do, especially due to the decent amount of shade provided along the trail. This 4.4-mile out- and- back ride will take you up the gradual ascent of Tunnel Canyon, over to Cedro Creek and Otero Canyon, and then back. Tunnel Canyon is well known to locals as a mountain biking trail, but it’s an excellent multiuse trail for most of the year because of its lower elevation for the winter months and the shade that trees provide for the summer months. The trail goes up through Tunnel Canyon and a beautiful pine forest. There is a military base to the west of the trail.
