Description

Miramonte Rim trail is a great beginner loop in the northern Lunch Loops trail network. This description begins and ends at Coyote Ridge; however the rim can be accessed at several locations along the Miramonte, Leftover Lane and Clunker trails.

Miramonte Rim does not require advanced technical skills, making it a good introduction to the trail system for riders unsure the Lunch Loops are right for them.

From the Tabeguache trailhead, climb Curt's Lane to Ali Alley go left and cross to Coyote Ridge. Again go left and ride past Holy Cross, up a short, technical rocky area to the southern end of the rim trail.

(Note: maps show Leftover Lane may provide a more direct route to the rim. The Leftover Lane trail does not get a lot of use, making it a bit rough. There is also a hike a bike where Leftover Lane drops from the rim. The route crosses a valley to Miramonte; while the Ali Alley and Coyote Ridge traverse the ridge around this valley.)

Riding clockwise from Coyote Ridge, the trail passes two connector trails on the left. The first at 1.3 miles descends to Miramonte at a four-way intersection with Leftover Lane. The second, 0.2 miles further descends to the northern end of Miramonte.

Once past the northeastern tip of the rim, there is another left turn down a switchbacking connection to Clunker. This can also be used as an access to Little Park Road, at a small, gravel, underutilized trailhead parking area.

Continue southwest 3/4 mile further along the rim back to Coyote Ridge.
