Concealed in the depths of the Kaibab National Forest, mountain biking the old Arizona Trail is the best way to enjoy the natural grandeur of the Grand Canyon. Lined with wildflowers, our bike trail takes us through huge ponderosa forests and shimmering aspen groves to a place where few people have been, the East Rim View! From our campsite perched on the edge of the Kaibab Plateau, we enjoy extraordinary views, mountain bike rides, and hikes along the rim. Crossing to the west side of the plateau, we camp next to one of the most scenic mountain bike trails in the world, the Rainbow Rim Trail. For the next two days we explore 36-miles of remote forested singletrack stretching between spectacular canyon overlooks.
Providing gently rolling terrain and occasional challenges, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon has always been a favorite of guides and guests of all levels. The chance to experience one of nature's most awesome sights from the seat of your mountain bike is truly an opportunity of a lifetime.
