Rim Trail (105) Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Rim Trail traverses the spine of the Sacramento Mountains, winding through miles of gorgeous spruce and pine forests. Views from this ridge are fantastic. To the west bright dunes of white sand can be seen in the Tularosa Basin. Behind the dunes are the San Andreas Mountains. The Rim Trail is a good opportunity to ride some moderately difficult, really fun singletrack. This ride is worth trying out even if you only have a couple of hours: It is easy to lengthen or shorten by using the many access points along the way."
