Mountain Biking Vineyard Trail #131

  Add a review
#306 of 401 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#17,728 in the world

Trail passes through a variety of Lower Sonoran Desert vegetation plant communities. Spectacular views of Roosevelt Lake, Apache Lake, Roosevelt Dam and Four Peaks. Historic Camp O'Rourke located near the east terminus. Signs of long abandoned tent sites and building foundations are visible from the trail. As part of the Arizona Trail, the route continues west on the Four Peaks Trail 130 or southwest across Roosevelt Bridge to the Thompson Trail 121.

As the trail leaves the highway from Vineyard Trailhead, it passes through historic Camp O'Rourke, an area inhabited by Theodore Roosevelt Dam workers and their families in the early 1900's. The trail climbs steeply over a converted jeep-track that was once used to access an electronic reflector on Vineyard Mountain. From the reflector, the trail leaves the old road. The trail crosses Vineyard Mountain and descends to Forest Road (FR) 336 and follows the road for a short distance. The trail then leaves the road and follows a ridge top for approximately 1.5 miles where it terminates at the Mills Ridge Trailhead at the end of FR 429. Difficulty: more difficult. source: fs.usda.gov
