Located 16 miles north of Bloomfield, the Alien Run Trails is ranked among the more technically challenging and scenic mountain bike trails in the Four Corners. Routed near an alleged UFO crash site and annual stage for the celebrated Alien Run Mountain Bike Competition, "The Alien Run" can be navigated by beginners yet is immensely challenging for experts.
