Mostly singletrack with some forest roads. Some hike-a-bike. High alpine meadows, forest trails and a eastern view of the Grand Canyon along this route. There are some very difficult sections on this trail, but the majority is pretty easy singletrack.

       Road southbound out and back today. Trail was fun and fast. Not another person in sight.

       Rode a daytrip southbound on AZT from 89-A to North Rim returning to Jacob Lake on SR-67 (10/5/2019). Vistas and fall leaves were unbeatable. Trail is well marked. Actual riding on the trail was pretty slow going compared to our expectations (after reading another review and seeing the words "fast and flowey" used). Much of the trial was loose and coarse limestone cobbles that really hindered speed. "Fast and flowey" is simply incorrect. The two of us that rode are conditioned riders, used to high-mile days in the Wasatch and 8-hour laps on the White Rim. We had hoped to ride the Rainbow Trail, but were prevented by forest fires burning on that side of the Kaibab. Superb scenery, marginal riding.
