Icehouse Canyon Trail - TRAIL

Icehouse Canyon Trail - Trail, Globe, Arizona

Remote, technical, very steep and fast in some places. The top section of the trail is not heavily traveled and can be hard to follow in places. There are some very fun rock gardens and a few downed trees with up and over ramps. There are a few junctions halfway down. I rode this loop without a map (not recommended). The Globe Hot Shots told me it was the best way to loop the mountain. The last 2 miles of the climb (Squaw Springs) gains over 1500Ft! This trail system is not for the faint at heart.

. As of 2010 this is one of the best trails on the mountain . Just a few trees down in groups towards the bottom and thats it. Well ridden and defined. Fast fun off camber singletrack ,swoopy turns, rocky rooty tech areas, lush pines and aspens, creek flowing plus more. A must ride for anyone who likes to push the boundries of speed thru the tech that is icehouse .

Customer Service

Hook up with the local valley boys to find best routes and pickup points. Otherwise the main trails all end at icehouse CCC

The initial review is misleading, because of the route description. Pinal Peak has a network of 5 wonderful trails from the top of the mountain down to the ranger station. Icehouse's trailhead at the top is the second one you reach when driving up Kellner Canyon Road (the only driving access to the top). Kellner Canyon Trail is the first trailhead, then Icehouse. Continuing on up the road, you pass the trailheads to SixShooter Canyon and Telephone Trail, and at the top of themountian, you can go east down Squaw Springs, or Northwest down Ferndell (which ties into SixShooter and Telephone). All 5 trails have over 3,000 feet of vertical before you end up on paved roads again. All have a great variety of terrain and challenges. I usually ride them as shuttles, but have pedaled up the forest road to the top once (just because it's there).

Customer Service

Ride it as a shuttle, connecting to Check Dam Trail on the lower part of the mountain, then bearing east to SixShooter Canyon Road when you finally leave singletrack. We stage our shuttles fomr a diurt parking lot a few hundred yards north of the ranger station on SixShooter Canyon Road.
