Mountain Biking Mexican Border Loop

**   Add a review
#230 of 414 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#8,238 in the world

Go West through the metal fence over one of the bike/horse gates. Follow
the 2 track for about 100 yards West. Look for one of the metal trail
markers on the left to let you know where to cross the sandy wash. These
trail markers are at every decision point. The start is quite bumpy but keep
going. 2 miles in is a Border Patrol camera tower and at 2.5 miles is a major
split off on the right. This is the start of a 3.5 mile loop that forms the
"lollipop". If you don't know the loop it's easiest to turn here and circle
counter clockwise although I think it's more fun clockwise. The Southern
most portion of the loop touches on the Mexican border and is very
interesting. Carry ID and obey signs, although I've never had any problems
with the Border Patrol or seen any wet backs. I usually do the loop 2 or 3
times making this a 12 or 15.5 mile ride.

Getting there
From the Bisbee traffic circle go West on highway 92 for about 13 miles. Just
before coming to the San Pedro River Bridge look for a sign for "riparian Zone
parking on the left side of the road (South side). The road to the parking area
is about 100 yards long. There are toilet and picnic facilities there but no
System trails (1)
