Ruidoso, NM (9.5 hours from Austin)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone spent much time in Ruidoso, New Mexico?  It has proximity going for it (a little over nine hours from Dripping Springs).  We went through there last summer on our way to Yellowstone and managed to get in one ride at Grindstone Lake which was fun.  Just wondering if anyone has more thoroughly explored the area.  I know Shane at Canyon Cycles used to live there and has talked it up.  Twenty five years ago we used to travel to the Cloudcroft area (just down the road from Ruidoso) for mountain biking, but my understanding is that Ruidoso has a more developed mountain bike trail system.

I'm going on June 20 and will report.

There are two trails systems, Grindstone Lake and Cedar Creek. MTBProject and TrailForks have details.

There are quite a few videos on the downhill flow run at Cedar Creek.

Here's one of them


Ski Apache also offers lift service to three trails on Sierra Blanca. Not sure whether it is a good value and I have no plans to ride it while there.
