Lower Ark MBA

Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

An entertaining climb/descent with great views of the South Cañon area and the Grape Creek Valley. This one connects Temple Canyon Road (via BLM 6181) and Hard Time. The higher end on the north-facing slope will keep snow longer than most trails in the area - consider riding from the bottom up to the mid-point saddle when there is snow.

Getting forecast...

I pedaled up to this via temple canyon rd. that's just how I like to roll. It was a mostly smooth flowy trail with short punchy climbs after the starting climb(is brief). its a great start to any combo of trails below. One thing though is the entrance is set back from the road. It looks like a 4x4 trail at a glance but has the MTB icon along with many other familiar trail access icons. Feb 20, 2017
