We posted a dirt bike trail area a few weeks ago in New Mexico, and a link to the best routes in Arizona the end of the year. So might as well keep it in the Southwest for now.

Known as the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico doesn’t disappoint with a wide variety of geography and scenery. From the mountains that spill down from Colorado to the north to the wide open spaces it shares with Texas to the east, there are plenty of routes to challenge every level of rider. According to BestBikingRoads.com, there are actually 47 of them

Of course, you’ll have to watch out for the aliens near Roswell in the southeast part of the state. And if you make it down to Las Cruces, you’re not far from Ciudad Juarez in Mexico. West and slightly south of Albuquerque is the Acoma Pueblo, one of the earliest continuously inhabited communities in the United States

Hot in the summer and varied the rest of the year, plan accordingly depending on what time of year you choose to ride there.
