Summary:
3.2 miles of challenging exposed single track. About 1,000 foot of elevation gain Complete with switchbacks, rock gardens and amazing views. it is part of a larger network of trails. At the top it connects with Castle Rock trail; this will connect you to the Beale trails and Monolith Gardens. As mentioned it is a multi-use trail so watch for people on foot. Advanced rider can go up and down in an hour. Highly recommend riding the Castle Rock out and back past the top bench( to the left). Be on your "A-game" on the way down. safety first!

Recommended Route:
Park at trail head on highway 93 or ride up the long hard way from Beale trail head.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Monolith Gardens, Castle Rock, & Beale systems all intertwine/connect. Shop by BICYCLE WORLD on Northern ave in Kingman for advice, trail conditions, and a map.... maybe even a riding buddy :)

Summary:
Having never climbed the trail, I can only imagine the battle it would be. But...I did bonzai down it, and I can say how fun that is! It is sketch at points, and the exposure and switchbacks keeps speed to a minimum, but I am sure it is worth the climb to bomb back down!

Recommended Route:
I started at the Camp Beale loop and connected it with Badger for a point to point.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Camp Beale Loop, Cook Trails (across the highway).

Summary:
This trail isn't in the mountains??? Hmmm... I wonder what I have been climbing all this time? It's in the southern end of the Cerbat range. The trail is a ton of fun... steep with lots of switchbacks. The trail itself is pretty smooth even though it weaves in and out of car-size boulders at times. If you're passing through, you should definitely give it a shot. You'll probably have it all to yourself.

Recommended Route:
From Kingman, hop onto 93 towards Vegas. Just past the turnoff to Bullhead/Laughlin, take a right. It isn't marked. If you end up in a place called SOHI, you've gone too far.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Camp Beale Loop, Cherum Peak Trail

Reviewed by: Sal Paradise , from Bullhead City

Summary:
Fun, fast and hard singletrack. Mostly up hill on the way out, flatens for a while on top of the ridge. Great down hill on the way back in. Some of the switchback landing pads are a little bit loose so watch the front tire. Its suppose to be a mulit use trail (like the other trails in the area) but nobody was out there on a sunny sunday. Not a big fan of out and backs but this trail is worth riding if your in the area.

Recommended Route:
There is only one route.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Not much else out here except the Beale trail. Too bad because they are both pretty good for what there is to work with out here. Why aren't there trails like these 2 in the mountains?
