    Great ride and some hike a bike. Rode it last Thursday. U Bar and Houston Bros has some great singletrack.

    We rode the AZ trail from Blue Ridge to Fred Haught to FR300 to Houston Bros to U Bar to Barbershop to Buck Springs to Houston Bros to FR95 and back.
    a little hike a bike. Ubar is a sweet piece.

    The "closed" area - Arizona Trail South of Clear Creek is really well maintained in the controlled burn. They spent a lot of time controlling it away from the trail bed. Trail is unaffected by burn.

    Kudos to the Forest Service fire fighters. They did a great job protecting the vast parts of the Cabin Loop!

    We rode Houston Bros, U Bar, Barbershop and Fred Haught, with the necessary side trips on 300 and 139.

    Houston and U Bar are right out our back door.

    yeah - they put a lot of work into it for sure.
    Nice places up there. This was my 4th trip up there in the last 2 months.

    its a 50/50 chance you will be hiking after riding, or vice versa.

    We put together this little loop to make 2 nites out on the trail.

    You'll definitely be hiking during the ride as well as after. Some gnarly steep rock sections during and absolutely gorgeous woods hikes after.

    Great 2 days and nights you put together.

    It's off-topic garbage like this that'll lead to your eventual banning, you troublemaker.

    Please include more pictures of armored stormtroopers and/or "gnar" in all future postings.

    p.

    must get up to the Cabin Loop ASAP
    Don't be that guy! Read the forum guidelines.

    you must get into bikepacking before it becomes mainstream and is ruined by Trek.

    Being that you have a place up there and likely have more time on the trails than most - any suggestions for a similair route or changes to the one taken?

    I know you rode some of this last year, so I hope I'm not being too mundane here.

    The route Yetisurly took is a good one. The section of AZ Trail from SR87 to Clear Creek can be a bear. Did you do this last year? I'd rather take FR 95 to Fred Haught or Houston Bros. as it is 100% rideable. I also prefer starting Houston Bros at the south end so I can ride DOWN the steep hike a bike into the fern filled draw.

    A good place to camp is the junction of 139 and 139G, or anywhere near this area. This puts you within a mile of the easiest part of U Bar to find. There is a sign on 139 before 139G marking U Bar.

    I like to ride UBar to Barbershop to Houston Bros to Fred Haught and back on 95, simply because it's right out our back door.

    If you camp along 300, start north on Fred Haught and connect to U Bar, then B-Shop and Houston Bros.

    I could go on and on as the possibilities are endless, let's just say it's lots of fun exploring these trails and their offshoots.

    The mileage for Cabin Loop ( FH, BS, HB and UBar ), is approximately 24 miles. Add in 16 for the AZT and it's a BIG 40 mile loop. Cabin Loop is a day in itself. Not like 24 miles at SOMO.

    When I'm done, I sit here and have a beer. Or 2.
