Mountain Biking Pothole Arch Trail

***   Add a review

After climbing Amasa Back the trail forks off to the right. The singletrack will take you out and back to Pothole Arch and to the start of Rockstacker. Fun trail on slickrock and singletrack with great views.

    It may be that it was just a welcome change from the long slog up the Amasa jeep trail, but Pothole Arch was awesome up to the Rockstacker trail which is the only reason we rode Pothole. It starts out pretty flat but then opens up to some fast-ish downhill on singletrack and slickrock.

    While the arch at the end is a bit of a let down, I disagree with mike_d below. I think the real reason to ride this is because the trail itself is quite entertaining. The last stretch to the arch itself is all slickrock, and I thought it was quite enjoyable. Sure, this isn't a 5-star ride, but I'll give it 4 without reservation.

    The only reason toto ride this trail is to see the pothole arch at the end. It's poorly marked and maintained, multiple tracks leading different places. Not too steep, just rocky and very loose. Other local trails are better marked so you don't veer off course with piles of rocks, that is a rarity here, leaving you often wondering where the trail is. But the views are great!

    Fun singletrack on slickrock to small arch. Scenic and challenging. Out and back is 4.4 miles.
