Located in the Santa Fe National Forest, just outside of Los Alamos,
the Guaje Ridge trail can be accessed from Pajarito ski area for a long
and satisfying descent back into town. The trail crosses through
the hot burn area of the 2000 Cerro Grande fire, which lends a
post-apocalyptic feel to much of the ride. And on windy days there is a
lingering danger of tree fall. Still and all, it is a fantastic ride.
