This is a very popular mountain biking area. Please stay alert while on the trails and be respectful of other users.

Description

Hildalgo is a half-mile connector trail between Wildcat and 7-Up. Most use it to create a loop using these. It can be used as a climbing route back near the tops of the Wildcat and Whirlwind.

The trails in this system reflect the rugged and challenging terrain they are built within. Tight corners, constant grade changes are present. Surfaces vary from hard pack to slickrock to a bit of sand as the trails wind their way through pinion pines and rock canyons, all the while delivering unparalleled views of the majestic Moab area.
