    JD & Emily Tanner / Shey Lambert
    "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." Read more

    "Located east of Albuquerque near the quaint town of Tijeras. This is a sweet little gem of a ride that travels up and above picturesque Tunnel Canyon on excellent tight singletrack. There are excellent views to the Sandias and great exposure as you sidehill it to Otero Canyon. The ride is short and makes for a good warm-up for the longer rides in the area. Folks who are new to the area might want to do this ride to get a good feel for the area and the type of riding you experience in the tree-covered hills. Trail surface: Singletrack trails and paved roads." Read more
