Rim Lakes Recreation Area
I have an opportunity to ride for an afternoon next weekend in this area. I know there are a lot of jeep trails etc in and around 300; but there also seems to be some trails/single track too? Couldn't find via the search option and sorry if i missed an obvious thread. Question, what would you recommend/suggest? Thanks!
If you're lucky enough to be in the mountains,
you're lucky enough.
TH260 (3/4 of the way up the rim on US260, on the left) is a start point for a loop that includes immediately heading up Military Sink Hole (kinda brutal IIRC) to 300 then to See Canyon, Drew Canyon and Highline I think. I don't remember the trail order but once you make it up to the rim trail you take that just a couple miles at most then drop down between two wood fence posts...then the fun begins (assuming the trail has been cleared of dead fall). With a shuttle you can omit the climb from TH260 up MS.
Search around for Drew Canyon, MS, etc....it's out there.
I think this is the jist of it. MS is near the Parking icon at the bottom, you climb up to rim trail (green) and take that N.W. and drop down where the little green mountain bike is. Then return to Parking. Or I think you can take the right hand onto See Canyon and ride down to Christiopher Creek...you could start there as well if you feel like some ass-kicking climbing at 6-7.5k feet. I did not ride that trail but I do remember enjoying the drop down and Highline back to MS quite a bit.
Right on eatdrinkride, thanks, perfect!
Re: Rim Lakes Recreation Area
No problem. Just be forewarned, I remember the climb up military sinkhole to be a lot of loose shale. Some hike a biking for sure.

I am not looking for a long/technical ride, just to get on the bike in some cooler weather for 2-3 hours. I am looking for some single track, and to avoid fire/forest roads and vehicle traffic/dust. I am open to other suggestions, maybe around Black Canyon lake area or anywhere between the rim and Heber.
Here are just a few of the key ingredients: dynamite, pole vaulting, laughing gas, choppers.....
I camp up there all the time.

Still a nice area and a lot cooler than here. Not usually not a lot of traffic either. Most of the traffic is in the areas near Hwy 260.
