Mountain Biking Timber Mesa
#194 of 407 mountain bike trails in Arizona
Timber Mesa begins with a rocky climb out of the parking lot up to the mesa at which point you can go CW or CCW. Recommend taking a left at the junction and riding clockwise. The first few miles are filled with rock features and exposure as you traverse along the edge of the mesa. After about 3 miles you turn into the trees and the trails turns to fast and twisty flow through the pines.
Note: The Sawmill connector will take you over to the Panorma trail head. The Osprey connector is also a fun little descent from Timber Mesa back down to Porter Mtn. Rd.

From Hwy 260 in Pinetop turn onto Penrod Rd. go 1.5 miles, turn onto Porter Mtn. Rd and the trailhead is 1/4 mile up the road on your left.
Recommend riding it clockwise. Trail markers are listed T1-T29. The first 8 were a lot of uphill and loose rock so it was hard to get a flow going, had to unclip and walk a few times. After T8 it starts to ease up and the trail winds through some pines so it's less rocky, after T-13 it's a lot of downhill with some fun corners.Thank |
