Planning a biking trek through Doña Ana County is about to get a lot easier.
March 27, 2023, marks the official launch of the Las Cruces Gravel Adventure Guide (GAFG), a guide highlighting the biking trails of southern New Mexico. To celebrate completion of the guide, Visit Las Cruces will host a book launch party at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at Amaro Winery, 402 S. Melendres St.

Last year, Visit Las Cruces Destination Experience Sales Manager Hilary Dutcher organized efforts to add the area to the Gravel Adventure Field Guide’s growing list of booklets that showcase gravel biking destinations across the U.S. Dutcher connected local cyclists with GAFG Editor In-Chief Juan DelaRoca to explore popular biking routes throughout Las Cruces and Doña Ana County.
They put together the 10 routes featured in the guide as a curated collection of varying distances and difficulty levels. The field guide is a pocket-sized book featuring comprehensive information about gravel biking in Las Cruces and Doña Ana County, detailed illustrated maps with GPS routes and art, stories and details about local attractions.
The Gravel Adventure Field Guide is a great tool for anyone looking to explore Las Cruces and Doña Ana County,” Dutcher said. “In addition to detailed route information, the guide provides important safety recommendations for desert trekking and an introduction to our community’s vibrant culture. The business section promotes local businesses for visitors needing anything from gear to gifts.”
Nestled in southern New Mexico’s Mesilla Valley between the Rio Grande and Organ Mountains, Las Cruces is the state’s second largest city with a population of more than 100,000 – encompassed by thriving retirement, student, and family living. Las Cruces is nationally recognized for its diverse landscapes, agricultural industry, affordability, hospitality, farmers market, food and more. It offers convenient access to White Sands National Park and multiple national monuments and state parks and has close connections to space tourism as the gateway Spaceport America.
