The Atalaya Mountain trail can be very technical and strenuous for most cyclists. Though the trail may seem easy in the beginning, switchbacks climb their way to the summit and seem to go on forever. The trail climbs more than 1,700 feet in just 3.8 miles, and most of the climbing is in the final push to the summit. The views from the summit are astounding and well worth the effort it takes to bike this local Santa Fe favorite. From the smooth singletracks of the arroyos to the rock- hopping trails nearing the summit, this trail has it all for riders looking for a great and rewarding challenge.
