Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest

Biking - White Mountain Area
Gorp.com
Trails are marked with blue diamonds, often bearing directional arrows, trail numbers, or colored dots. Yellow dots indicate a short route back to the trailhead. Green dots indicate a connector trail. Red dots indicate a side trail to a point of interest or a particularly scenic vista.

The trails frequently make use of and cross existing roads and travel ways. It's very easy to miss a trail marker and lose the trail. Expect this. If you become confused, backtrack to the point where you lost the trail. Portions of the trail system use forest roads. Be aware of possible vehicle traffic.

Partnership with the Forest Service, Pinetop/Lakeside TRACKS, and the Arizona State Parks Heritage Trails Fund have helped build these trails. Volunteers have built the majority of the White Mountain Trail System. If you or your community service group is interested in volunteering, contact the U.S. Forest Service or Pinetop/Lakeside Parks and Recreation Department.

All of the trails in the White Mountain Trail System are open to bicycles.
