    White Mountains - NOT the Tour

    Can someone (a member, on this site point) me to a trail map (online or via email attachment) along with
    route suggestions?

    Thanks, but I was hoping to get online resources so that I wouldn't have to schedule a ride
    based on anyone's "hours of operation".

    Tracey and I will probably be up there and ready to ride at about 7 or 8 AM on Friday. It's
    not usual for a bike shop to be open at 6 AM.

    I don't know Epicrider's website, but with a little searching on the AZ board I've always been able to find it. He should have good maps.

    Found it:

    http://www.tracks-pinetop-lakeside.org/trail1.htm

    This page has all the official trails in Showlow/Pinetop/Lakeside area. They are all loops with connector trails between them.

    I recommend Los Burros also. It's the best overall trail in the system. Ride it CCW.

    Note: There was a lightning fire a few weeks ago when I was there and portions of the trail were closed. Check with the FS or the Sitgreaves National Forest website for closures.

    I haven't done South Fork yet. I hear it's pretty though...still, if in the White Mtn's I think Los Burros is a must.

    Head into Cycle Mania at some point and ask them about the 'secret' trails. They are just southwest of the hospital. I beleive parts of the 'secret' trail system hooks into the Buena Vista trail. Lots of fun riding through there!!!

    Here's the Springerville ranger district's trail guide. Not all of the trails are open to bicycles, but I'd recommend Indian Springs to the West Fork of the Black River.

    The rail trail is shown on the map, too.

    Enjoy!

    WOW!

    The Mother Load!

    Thanks for the excellent resources!

    As an aside, the Trail Review section on this site needs a place in the header to add links
    such as the above.

    My favorite two trails up in the White Mtns are the South Fork Trails and the Mt Baldy loop, which is actually two trails combined into a loop, the West Fork and the East fork trails of the Little Colorado. South fork is a fun decent from Mexican Hay lake that can be shuttled, but also can be done as an out and back from the South Fork Campground. The out and back version will require a short hike-a-bike up a short section of loose trail and a rock shoot, point 'B' on my MAP. The Mt Baldy Loop is a fun trail and probably has the most remote feel of the White Mtn Trails. The initial climb is challenging and ends with a fun one mile technical DH back into Greer. Start the ride at the trail head parking area at the south end of the road that goes through Greer, mark as "P" on my MAP. Ride north back through town and follow the map in a counter clockwise direction. The trail may have been rerouted in the where it crosses and runs along SR 273 since the highway was realigned in this area. Mostly singletrack except for the section of forest road to connect to the trwo trails (FR 554). The last five miles from pt '5' is fun rolling DH singletrack.

    I rode the Mt. Baldy loop in June. Your map is pretty accurate. When you get close to SR273, just head for the gated culvert across the meadow (trail is really hard to follow here), come out on the other side, then follow the cinder railroad grade through the Sheep Crossing area, under a bridge, and then parallel to the dirt road until you reach the FR554/Winn CG junction. Pick up the East Fork trail here.

    More info here.
