More Arizona Trail goodness to (nearly) all the way to the car awaited us.
The closure sign was nowhere to be found, so we continued on toward the burnt area.
Flower goodness...one can only hope the burnt area will recover to something as spectacular as these two pictures.
The perfect bikepacking trip to end the summer. It's easy to feel alive when you are on the bike in such a beautiful area.
Interested in riding the route?
3 days, ~150 miles, 3 different views into the Grand Canyon (Rainbow Rim, North Rim, East Mesa)
There are many variations to this ride. I would not recommend dropping off the rim in the summer time. However, that said, if it is fall and you want more miles, you can drop off the east rim and head to the end of the AZ Trail as a variation.
Here is our GPX from the ride.
