Flagstaff’s trails are second to none!
If you are looking for somewhere to get more fit, road riding at 7000 feet cannot be beaten.
The mountain biking in Flagstaff consists of scores of shorter trails arranged in a network. This provides unlimited opportunities for making different rides but also creates a challenge in conveying routes on a web site. We recommend that you stop in and we’ll get you set up with a map and some advice depending upon what kind of riding you want to do. We truly have something for everyone!
Below are only a few highlighted trails and systems that may or may not make up a whole ride alone, but certainly can be part of some rides while you are here. Stop if the shop for a much more comprehensive overview of where to mountain bike while in Flagstaff.
- Flagstaff Urban Trail System – The “FUTS” is a great way to get around town, a great opportunity for beginner riders, and provides access to the surrounding mountain bike trails.
- The Flagstaff Loop Trail – This work-in-progress will eventually loop the City of Flagstaff, providing connectivity between the FUTS, surrounding neighborhoods, and the County and US Forest Service trails systems.
- The Arizona Trail – The Arizona Trail passes through the Flagstaff area on its way from Utah to Mexico. This recently completed trail offers some phenomenal opportunities to traverse broad swaths of the surrounding landscape. Use other trails in the system to make loops with the AZ Trail.
- Campbell Mesa Trails – This is a great system of loops for beginner riders or folks just looking for a quick easy spin.
- Dry Lake Hills Trails – Stemming from the backbone of the classic Schultz Creek Trail, this system includes steep climbs, rocky descents, and great views of the San Francisco Peaks.
