Los Burros

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 9

The trail winds 14 miles on old road and single track, through thick stands of pine and aspen forest. It's not too rocky, and is petty much isolated from civilization. This trail has some moderate climbs. The elevation ranges from about 7850' to 8300'. There are several side trial options, too.

Summary:
The trail was a lot of fun. It was great to get out of the desert heat. There are some ups and downs and flats as well. Some really fun downs once you get to the top. Not sure if I did the entire trail but the pieces i rode were definitely worth the trip. the only other thing I can compare it to is Mt Eldon, though not quite as technical or steep, but similar single track through the pines.

Summary:
The trail was really muddy when I went, but overall it was fun. I ride a DH bike, so it was a lot of work for me on some of the climbs in the mud, but when we got up to the top and rode down, it was well worth it on the ride down. I would recommend this trail to anyone in the area. Lots of wildlife.

Summary:
I liked it a lot. It worked me with the elevation difference from Phoenix. Was well signed for the most part. The downhill was just what i needed at the time, lots of thrill but not much technical for this intermediate rider hungry for a chance at some good air time with good prospects of landing well. I bonked at mile 13 from not enough food early, but got over the exciting parts with energy to spare and had a lot of fun. Part of the fear is waiting for the mountain lions to drop on you. Riding it alone meant that I was absolutely by myself the whole time. Saw one cowboy working his cattle.

Recommended Route:
Go counter clockwise like they suggest.

Summary:
This is a nice, scenic, easy 13 mile ride. By easy, I mean non-technical singletrack. There are some nice uphill areas that can be challenging.
It is pretty well marked for the most part, until somewhere about 9-10 miles in, where we lost the trail for a while. Towards the end, there is a short, steep rocky downhill that is a bit challenging, but other than that, it is an easy, fast ride. It took us less than two hours.

Recommended Route:
Take 260 out of Showlow to the Vernon turnoff (right). Go about 10-12 miles down the road (turns into dirt after a couple miles) to the Los Burros campground turnoff to the left. The sign is a ways off the road, so keep your eyes peeled.

Summary:
The trails I rode (Los Burros and the connection trail to Country Club) were in a word "boring". The scenery is good. However the trail does not offer anything as far as technical riding goes (i.e. not much fun). This trail would be good for beginners or someone who wants to get out of the heat and train on old logging roads at some elevation.

Recommended Route:
go to flag twice for the same amount of gas

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I spoke to several people at outdoor shops in the area and they said Los Burros was the best, so don't spend 4 hours in a car each way just to ride. If your in the area which is very scenic then get out and tool around for a while. Just don't expect any thrills. Maybe the downhilling at Sunrise?
