Summary:
Its hard to find much to ride on at the Canyon, It is illegal to ride on trails, but not forest roads in the National Park.

Recommended Route:
This is a bike and then hike route. Park at Maswics Transportation Center and head south down Rowe Well Road until you get to a picinic shelter, take a right. After about a half mile there is a small jeep road onthe right, take it. That road forks right away, take the left one. after a half mile or so you reach a for way intersection, take the left. You stay on this road for quite a while, you will definatly see and hear helicopters. Now the next turn you need a map for, it is where Dripping Springs Trail meets the road and it is hard to see if your not paying real close attention. It is on the right about 4 miles past the last intersection. Now there is a sign that says this is the trail head of Drippings Spring Trail right nest to the road, but in the past and on the maps the sign was a mile away from the road at the rim of the Canyon. Dont get your self into trouble read the signs and ask a ranger at the Maswicks Transportation Center Back Country Office. Once you reach the point bikes are not allowed you don't need a lock, there is allmost never anyone out there, you are really in the middle of nowhere. The trail goes about a mile down into the canyon where there is a tiny seep that drips from a huge overhang, I drink the water with out filtering, you take the risk if you want to. The one mile hiking part is probably a 500 foot descent.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Also at the "four way intersection" i refered to you can go stright to the Waldron Trail head and hike on it(about a half mile)to the rim for a nice secluded view of the canyon. If you go right at that same intersection it takes you to the Abyss (find a map). This is a good way to make it into a loop, and is also what i did allmost every day when I lived up there
