    Small Airports and Trails

    So this is a first world problem, but I'm looking for interesting destinations in the West with trails near small airports like Ranger Creek and Skookum Flats/Suntop near Seattle. Any good info?

    Not sure if it's what you're looking for exactly, but you can ride ~100 yards from the airport in Sedona and be on singletrack. Which connects to more and more and more.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......

    That was my first thought. KSEZ is a cool destination. The field is on top of red rock butte. Approach and departure ends are shear dropoffs.

    Exactly. That's the type airports I'm looking for. Orcas Island Airport is also about 5k from the Moran State Park trail system at Mt. Constitution.

    Yea, a -7. I'm able to get a 29r in it after some disassembly so that opens up some interesting options.

    HA! That's creative. I was thinking maybe you invented the ultimate empennage mounted bike rack!

    A picture is needed....I think it should also fit my Stumpy instead of the Rockhopper.
