Manzanita Mountains trail map


Used loosely, "Manzanita Mountains" refers to the lower ridges and peaks (including Cedro Peak) at the north end of the Manzano Mountains, south of I-40. When I came across a map of the local trails, I was surprised to see how many trails there are. The map seemed worth sharing so here it is.

Most of the trails are open to motorcycle use, so hikers will need to keep their eyes and ears open as they ramble. Still, all sorts of options whether you're on a motorbike, a mountain bike, a horse, or your own two feet.
