Mountain Biking Murray Springs Clovis Site

***   Add a review
#191 of 410 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#6,672 in the world

The trail follows an old railroad bed East. A short way down this trail is tha
main tourist attraction for the parking area. It is an archaeological site and
there is an information loop with signs telling about the Clovis People that
lived here twelve to fourteen thousand years earlier. This is a foot path
across the wash and not part of the bike ride. Continue East along the rail
bed. Murray springs "springs" from the ground somewhere South of this tril.
There are several spots where it may be neccesary to walk your bike across
deep gullys. The trail meets Murray Creek after 1.6 miles. This is the
junction with the trail leading South to San Pedro House or North to
Escapule Road. Stay North of the stream and make your way across a
severe gully to get on the trail heading North to Escapule trail head. You'll
cross an interesting high wooden bridge and after .4 miles there will be a
break in the fence on the right with a rocky dual track leading 1/4 mile
down hill to the Clanton Family Ranch ruins. This is an interesting historical
site, remember the OK Corral? Return to the main trail and ride 3/4 miles
North along a rocky and sandy dual track to the trail head at Escapule Road
then return to your car for a 6 1/2 mile round trip.
