There are a couple of bail/cutoffs on this loop. This has a great view of the desert floor from near the apex of this portion of the forest. Be prepared to climb. Easy pedal back to the start on the Rim Road.

Access Info

Rim Road, Pinon to Queen.


Beware of hunting season, fire weather, extreme winds by the rim, and storms that blow-up from the rim.
