Mountain Biking Arizona Trail: Kaibab Trail / Fredonia

****   Add a review
#89 of 405 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#4,837 in the world

This singletrack has a fair amount of up and downs, with quite a few brute climbs involved. It generally seems like you take on one stiff climb, followed by a downhill portion, then some flat cruising to the next climb. Repeat around ten times and you have this portion of the Arizona Trail. Very pretty meadows. You have one awesome view of the East Rim of the Grand Canyon as well that is worth stopping for pictures.

    This trail seemed pretty moderate, so I wouldn't rate it as advanced but it is designed very well. Smooth rolling the whole time with fantastic views. I went in late Spring and there were portions of the trail still covered with snow, in fact it started snowing lightly on us, so be prepared for that.

    Really great backcountry trail. I rode it in early June so there was still some deadfall, but that didn't take away from how good the trail was. Some steep ups and downs but mostly ridable. Accessible from any of the campgrounds along the highway. Views are spectacular.

    The East Rim Viewpoint is the best but this trail is also accessable from hwy 89a less than 2 miles east of Jacob Lake. From this point the trail is in pine forest. Riding south to the East Rim would be about 30 miles, another 7 to the national park boundary, my favorite section of this trail.
    Some day I have to ride it north to the Utah border, big descent. Elevations range from below 5000' at Utah to 8400' and higher south of East Rim. Actually called the Kaibab Trail and is part of the AZ Trail. Few people here.

    This trail is a lot of stiff climbs followed by quick downhills, then rolls through some green meadows. There is one incredible view point of the East Rim during the early section of the ride. I remember this ride best for being decently grueling every year I do it.
