Location: Laughlin, NV
Parking: Park on south end of trail.
Trail Condition: Surface is concrete and pretty smooth. Plenty wide.
Signage: Lots of signage, informational and route direction.
Comments: Trail isn’t real long for a bike ride but plenty scenic, informational, and worth a visit. After crossing over the major highway on a nicely done bridge, the trail gets away from any traffic and city activity. The parks at both ends of the trail are very nicely done, modern and clean. Along the trail there are a number of covered rest stops, a couple water fountains, and trail spurs down to the river’s edge. We encountered a small number of walkers and no bikes.
Location: Lake Havasu City, AZ
Parking: City Visitor Center next to London Bridge
Trail Condition: Asphalt smooth with lots of lateral cracks. Appears to have been sealed recently but nothing to fill the cracks. A few of the cracks are wide enough to be felt when riding over. Plenty wide.
Signage: Sufficient amount of route direction and end points.
Comments: Starting at the visitor center means that which ever direction is followed it will be pretty much uphill from there. The northern end is a gradual climb to the end of the trail about 3 miles out. Along the northern end a number of intersections and traffic lights are encountered. The trail parallels the major highway and switches sides of the road several times. This means instead of one traffic light at an intersection there are two that must be negotiated. Most of these intersections are a good distance apart. Not real scenic along this stretch but still okay for a ride. The southern section from the visitor center still requires crossing a couple intersections and changing side of road. The hill climb begins and goes for a good long distance before more intersections are encountered. This hill climb is steeper than the northern end. On the return downhill some good views of Lake Havasu and area can be had. This southern end is certainly more scenic and fewer intersections to deal with. Throughout the trail the designers added many “wiggles” in the trail, avoiding long straight stretches, a nice touch.
Location: Lake Havasu City, AZ
Parking: North end of loop at large parking area. Could park at Lake Havasu City Visitor Center and cross over London Bridge if combining with City Multi-Use Trail.
Trail Condition: Asphalt smooth and good. Wide enough but another foot or so would have been better.
Signage: Sufficient amount of route direction and informational. On this trail bikers go clockwise and walkers counterclockwise. Many signs reminding bikes and walkers which way to go.
Comments: This is a nicely done loop trail around the island. Trail users did observe the travel direction based on mode of travel. Did encounter one biker wandering across width of trail, rang bell to alert of passing, at passing they complained of not being warned, noted they were riding with ear buds in, so of course couldn’t hear my bell or me coming. A wider trail would help avoid these sorts of issues. Highly recommend this trail if in area.
I m an experienced mountain biker. This is not a rail trail. This is a horrible trail for experienced mountain bikers. The short single track portions r marked by rocks that hit ur pedals! The rest is awful awful awful.
Nothing to see, only Razors and dust.
Paved fairly flat
Definite senior citizens here! Definite newbie mountain bikers since the majority of our cycling experience is of the 'roadie' variety. So, the 'easy' rating for this course doesn't get it for these two. Given those paramenters, we can advise the following. Very well marked trail. Folllow the posts/carins. Lots of rock/ soft washes to traverse (we walked/pushed) before finally getting to the narrow gauge railbed. Can't really focus on the scenery heading west due to focusing on the trail obstacles, which consist of shale, rock and sand washes. Easiet part is the return trip when you are going uphill and can see the awesome mountain scenery in front of you with Boundry Cone being one of the most scenic. Glad we did it in spite of our limitations. The last several entries on the trail log near the parking area were of hikers. Very few transverse this via mountain bike. Maybe we didn't do so bad after all?
Drove to the lower Mohave-Milltown Rail Trail in a Toyota Sienna, to see if it was possible to ride this Trail on my Tri-Cruiser, .
Taking Willow Drive off Hwy 95, continue 1.7 miles after it turns to dirt, the turn off is easy to miss at N34.90958 W114.54285 then two more miles of rough Harpers Wash Road to the
signed TH at N34.92857W114.51589 elev 867’ . Parking off Rd.
The Railroad was constructed in 1903. The gold mining operation was shut down in 1904 Reported that it cost $250,000 to build and made $40,000. The Railroad abandoned in 1913.
Now only a Hiking or Mountain Bike Trail. It provides views of the Mohave Valley and the mountains by Oatman.
The Bike/Hiker TH on Boundary Cone Rd N34.99389 W114.43963 elev 1807’, has parking.
Mountain Bikers may enjoy this trail and then visit the Mining /Tourist town of Oatman, AZ just 4.2 miles above the Boundary Cone Rd TH on Historical Route 66. By Twirlymaker, Noel Keller July 13.
