St. George News (May 7, 2018)

Mountain bikers of all skill levels are welcome and encouraged to participate in an 18-mile mountain bike ride along the Arizona Trail Sunday from  8 a.m. to 1 p.m. MST, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. MDT.

The ride will begin at the Orderville Trailhead in the North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest. This segment of the Arizona Trail is mostly flat and considered an easy ride. Experienced trip leaders will be the guides.

“The North Kaibab Ranger District is privileged to manage 48 miles of the Arizona National Scenic Trail to the Utah border, and we are excited to partner with the Arizona Trail Association and Amazing Earthfest to celebrate this National Trails System Act 50th Anniversary Event,” North Kaibab Wilderness and Trails Specialist Allison Ayers said.

The Arizona Trail is an 800-mile hike, bike or ride-your-horse adventure. The trail runs from Mexico to Utah through some of the most spectacular scenery Arizona has to offer.
