Description

A ride on the Coconino Rim Trail is a great way to explore a portion of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Dirt singletrack winds along the rim of the canyon with expansive views of the Grand Canyon and Painted Desert.

The Coconino Rim Trail features historic structures along its length, including the impressive 80’ tower of the Grandview Lookout and the historic cabins of the Hull Brothers sheep herding operation. The Coconino trail is one section of the extensive Arizona Trail system and a ride here can be extended to the Moqui Stage Station or even Flagstaff for hearty riders looking for a longer multi-day biking adventure.

Riders should note fees are charged to enter the National Park.

Coconino Rim Trail is popular but remote and riders should bring extra food, water and clothing. Temperatures can plummet here if an afternoon thunderstorm strikes. It is also a great idea to include a repair kit and first aid kit. The Coconino Rim Trail is multi-use and hikers may be encountered. Please be considerate on the trails and understand right of way protocol.
