Hike / Bike trails near Ruidoso

My husband & I are visiting the Ruidoso/Alto area over Labor Day weekend, and I'm considering doing some hiking or bike-riding. We've hiked some trails at Monjeau Peak in the past, which was lovely. Can anyone recommend another favorite hike near Ruidoso that isn't too long (~4 miles or less would be good) and has good scenery/picture-taking opportunities?

Also, are there any graded or paved biking trails around town?

In case anybody else stumbles onto this forum looking for hiking info, here's some of what I've found (to answer my own question):

Hiking trails in the White Mountain Wilderness: www.ruidoso.net/visitors/outdoors/hiking.html

Mountain biking in the Lincoln National Forest: http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsinternet/!ut/p/c5/04_SB8K8xLLM9MSSzPy8xBz9CP0os3gDfxMDT8MwRydLA1cj72BTSw8jAwgAykeaxcN4jhYG_h4eYX5hPgYwefy6w0H24dcPNgEHcDTQ9_PIz03VL8iNMMgycVQEAIzTHkw!/dl3/d3/L2dJQSEvUUt3QS9ZQnZ3LzZfME80MEkxVkFCOTBFMktTNTlIMjAwMDAwMDA!/?recid=34166&actid=24&cid=null&navid=110290000000000&ss=110308&ttype=activity&navtype=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&pnavid=110000000000000&position=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&pname=Lincoln+National+Forest+-+Mountain+Biking

There are also some reports that Ski Apache may have a gondola open for some weekend days during the summer, with the possibility of hiking there.

I haven't found nay bike-rental shops in town, and I can't find any info online about paved bike trails in town, either.
