A few of us did a 2-day exploratory ride on the northern reaches of the Kaibab Plateau last weekend, partly to ride the last two (northernmost) passages of the Arizona Trail, and partly to scout a trail that had practically zero beta: Navajo Trail. The ride was a resounding success!! Ride report at the link below:
