Biking

Our gentle climate means that biking is a wonderful activity all year at Sapillo Creek Escape.

Experience the Tour of the Gila, Gila Monster Gran Fondo, and the TommyKnocker10 Mountain Bike Race  (all of which are open to both pro and amateur riders), and all of which call Silver City home. Participate in these races, or watch both the Tour of the Gila and Gila Monster Gran Fondo from our living room porch!

There are numerous mountain and road biking trails within and surrounding Silver City, all of which are located within easy distance of Sapillo Creek Escape.

Best yet, take your mountain or road bike out directly from our home. Route 35, the scenic Trail of the Mountain Spirits, is directly adjacent to our property and offers a multitude of riding options.
