Rimview Trail

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

Eleven of the smoothest miles of singletrack in the area! I can''t believe this trail isn''t already listed here. The loop works it''s way around a sandstone rim, yielding views of Lake Powell, Navajo Mountain, and my personal favorite, the Navajo Power Plant. The trail is 95% singletrack, 5% slickrock, with ample opportunity for slickrock exploration down towards the lake. I began the trail at the McDonalds parking lot, and headed clockwise. I recommend clockwise travel if for no other reason than it seems to provide better views. The trail is mostly hardpack, with a few short, sandy sections and a couple easy rock stairsteps. There is very little technical or aerobic difficulty encountered, so even beginners will enjoy this one. Intermediate/advanced riders who enjoy fast, smooth singletrack will have a blast, but don''t expect much challenge. Navigation was fairly straightforward... there''s lots of trail signs, though some intersections are unmarked. A little exploring/backtracking should get you back on track.

Trail Directions
I started from the back of the McDonalds parking lot, but I don't think they want to be used as trailhead parking. This trail is easily rideable from most all of Page. If you do need to drive to the trailhead, I heard there's one at the north end of N. Navajo Rd.

Summary:
Goat head central! Be sure to ride tubeless or slime. We learned the hard way with 10 plus flats. Be aware of the rim edge sections as well as a lot of sand and drops and short steep climbs. Not for a beginner unless you want to walk some parts.

Summary:
Pretty much as described. The McDonalds relocated. I picked up the trail below the library on S. Powell. Rode clockwise for the view but counterclockwise is a higher average speed. My Nomad was overkill for the terrain but it is kinda flowy. It was my first time on any kind of slickrock. N. Navajo and 13th are some dirt jumps. The west facing part of the loop has so much broken glass. I mean everwhere. Ghetto looking....come on Page.

Summary:
mostly single track. Goes around the whole town of Page, Az. Fun to ride. Mostly hardpack or loose over hardpack, some sand. I have heard that it's about 10 or more miles around the whole thing. It took me about 2 hours to cover the loop, I'm not the fastest rider, if you take your time it takes about 2 and 1/2 hours. It also goes right by the McDonalds, so if you plan on stopping for lunch bring money.
P.S. The Page school children do not maintain this trail. I should know because I am one of them.

Recommended Route:
I went clockwise, but it doesn't matter which way you go, either way you go, the end is going to be uphill. Take more than a bottle of water with you though, I only took one and was thirsty for a while.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you know how to ride through sand really well you can ride some of the four wheeling trails.

Summary:
Thought I'd add that this trail is maintained by local schoolchildren... how sweet is that! I'd consider giving this trail 5 stars if it didn't have such an "urban" feel to it... you have to cross a couple big roads near the end of the loop (if you're going clockwise) and the trail works around the edge of a golf course for a bit too. Otherwise, it's great.
