A hidden gem of the Southwest, Pajarito Mountain opens its lifts to bikes only on select weekends, a few which happen to be in September and October. Built by dedicated volunteers who love to ride as much as we do, the 25 trails are primed for the autumn season when the air is deliciously crisp and the dirt is extra tacky.
This month, the park will be undergoing extensive trail maintenance and enhancements to the following trails which can be ennjoyed on their final weekend:
Enhance Aspen for Trouble all the way down to the Chupacabra trail. Enhancements will include trail widening, jump enhancement and corridor cleaning (cutting back deadfall).
Enhance Aspenola trail for a more beginner friendly and smoother experience. They will be focusing on water erosion and enhancing turns and merges on this trail. Ultimately this trail is the closest thing to a beginner trail, and they want to make it work with the bike program in the spring. Working on this trail will give the park a head start for next season as it pertains to quality offerings.
Enhance a lot of the drop landings. Pajarito was hand built and needs some proper landings on a lot of the drops. Thet are going to start at the base area with Mother’s Milk, Natural Selection, Red Dog and Dog Patch. These trails all feed into the base area and they are going to work their way up by increasing the landing sizes on the drops and do some needed work in shoring up some of the bridges and water issues facing these existing trails.
