About this Location

The San Vicente Cienega Trail is 2.1 miles out and back.

This trail picks up where the Big Ditch Trail passes under the NM-90 bridge. The first half of this trail is a nice section with a few short climbing and descending sections. The middle portion of the trail will traverse the creek a couple of times and will be accented by more technical sections of slick rock-like terrain.

The last portion of the trail will open up and run parallel to an open area (to the west) owned by the city where ATV enthusiasts frequently ride on the trails. Finally, the trail ends near the golf course and baseball fields.

The main portion of this trail connects to a short loop that ascends a ridgeline toward Mountainview Road, but currently (early 2018), this section of trail is in disrepair, although still passable.
