Mountain bikers can try their luck just about anywhere there’s open terrain, as long as it’s not designated Wilderness Area.

Popular routes for road cyclists include a loop through Elephant Butte and rides to Engle (approx. 35 miles) and Cuchillo.

Routes from Hillsboro (on the edge of the Black Range) include the 152 up the mountain to Emory Pass in the Gila Wilderness, or the road south from Hillsboro through the Chihuahua grasslands to Lake Valley (or even on to Nutt in Doña Ana County).
