Mountain Biking South Fork Trail #97

****   Add a review
#232 of 401 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#8,289 in the world

Cool water, great views and three seasons of use make the South Fork trail one of the most rewarding trails on the District. A round trip hike adds up to 14 miles so many people like to leave a vehicle at each trailhead.
The primary trailhead is located in the South Fork Day Use Area on the west side of the creek Parking is limited at this time.
Another trailhead is located on the north side of Mexican Hay Lake
The roads to that trailhead can be very muddy during the spring runoff and summer rains. If this is the case, park by the gate near the highway and walk to the trailhead
The trail is open to horseback riders, bicyclists and hikers. source: fs.usda.gov

    It's a great hiking trail! However, to bike it, you can really only go in for a mile then have to turn around; there are way too many trees down across the trail and the trail is against steep slope on one side then the river on the other side.
