Part of a great four-mile loop that has great side-slope singletrack, working back in to Lion Canyon Road.

Need to Know

Contact BLM-White River Field Office or ERBM Recreation and Park District for more information on full Meeker Trail System. Trail can be ridden either direction, the trail description is for south on the trail and north on the road, but it can easily be taken the other direction.

Description

At the top/end of East Ridge, turn south down Lion Canyon Road. Take the first intersection down the Lion Canyon Road, turning west, until you reach the singletrack Lion Canyon Trail entrance (do not go past the trail entrance on the road or you'll be on private property). Take the flowing two miles of singletrack south all the way to the top of the Lobo Mountain (by the communication towers), then loop back north on Lion Canyon Ridge Road. Progressive Trail Design completed this trail in October of 2018.

Zander, I tried to clarify on the trail submission that this trail can be taken either direction. I'm ok with how you posted it but the description narrative is for the opposite. Oct 23, 2018
