Glory be….Glorieta

When we were in Bentonville, we talked to a local guide and trailbuilder who recommended riding Glorieta if we were headed towards Santa Fe.  So, from Amarillo and Palo Duro we drove to Glorieta NM.  The trails are located on a Baptist summer camp, so it is closed to the public from mid June to the end of August.  The property is amazing–ropes courses,  zip lines,  climbing walls, remote campsites, a lake and other summer camp activities plus housing and RV camping.  The start of the trails are at 7500 feet and there is a lot of climbing but some incredible downhills.  Holy Mole is a machine built downhill that is the payoff for a 2500′ climb.  Then 30 acre wood is an old school downhill that winds around large boulders and has its own sweet specialness.  The sky was a clear blue and the clouds bright white…. all in all a great place that we would like to revisit.  From here we camp in Chama NM and then ride in Pagosa Springs CO.
