    Rides Near Karchner Caverns?

    I'm camping at Karchner Caverns State Park in a couple weeks and was wondering if there were some mountain biking trails close to the park?

    Watch out for Black Widow spiders. We camped there during a bikepacking trip in 2010. After riding a good part of the day from Bisbee we set up camp right at dusk. When we sat down at the picnic table to eat we saw one through the grate in the table. Upon further investigation we found several nesting in the table legs. We walked around to other sites but all of the tables had them. Cool to look at, but you don't want to get bitten.

    There is a legal singletrack in the park but I haven't ridden it. Have ridden the trail in the Dragoons to the saddle from the east side, west is steeper. Arizona Trail is to the west about 20 miles away near highway AZ83. Riding to the south on the Huachucas by Sierra Vista but you'll need a pass to get on the military base.

    The Huachuca Mountains are right down the highway. Look for Perimeter Trail, John Cooper Trail or Brown Canyon, to name a few. There are several access points directly off Highway 92. Enjoy!
