Bike Carry not Ride !

July, 2016 by michaelpeddie

Last year this was an awesome trail ride through beautiful country. My riding partner and I tried to ride this trail again on July 9th 2016 and the dead-fall trees made it a real chore. We conservatively estimated 100 trees across the trail in under a 7 mile distance. A real nightmare with all the fire-damaged trees.

Railroad Grade Trail (AZ)

Unrealized potential

March, 2011 by az pete

My wife and I have riden the entire trail on Mt. Bikes a couple of times. We have not encountered other riders on the trail. I suspect that the main reason is the tread is loose cinders, which are coarse in texture. The water crossings are commonly plated with cinder clods that are fist sized, and difficult to traverse. Much of the northern 1/2 of the trail is covered with bunch grass. The managing agency, Apache/Sitgraves NF, recently realigned/rebuilt a section of the trail, and again plated the tread with loose cinders, that do not pack down and provide poor traction, think riding in deep, loose sand. This could be a great trail to ride, it just needs a firm tread, and a little maintenance. With a firm tread, elimination of the fist sized cinders in the crossings, and bunch grass invasion, this trail would rate 5 stars.

ApacheTrail: NOT for mountain biking

October, 2005 by john sharrock

"Last week we rode the Apache Rail Trail from Rt260 to FR87. The scenary in mid-October is beautiful, but the trail was a BIG disappointment. It is very rough and unpleasant for biking. I won't ride the trail again until it is improved and I don't recommend it to other bikers. Too bad - - it could be a great ride.

White Mountain Apachie Railroad

August, 2005 by jerry2

This trail is simply not suitable for mountain bikers. In fact the trailbarely exists in most places simply being a spot with fewer weeds than the surrounding area. Arizona should be ashamed to have such an under developed trail. There is so much potential here yet our state does nothing with this resource.
