This is a hiking trail in the Grand Canyon National Park - not bikes allowed. I love to back pack this trail, but it should not be listed on the MTBR trail lists

Its hard to find much to ride on at the Canyon, It is illegal to ride on trails, but not forest roads in the National Park.

This is a bike and then hike route. Park at Maswics Transportation Center and head south down Rowe Well Road until you get to a picinic shelter, take a right. After about a half mile there is a small jeep road onthe right, take it. That road forks right away, take the left one. after a half mile or so you reach a for way intersection, take the left. You stay on this road for quite a while, you will definatly see and hear helicopters. Now the next turn you need a map for, it is where Dripping Springs Trail meets the road and it is hard to see if your not paying real close attention. It is on the right about 4 miles past the last intersection. Now there is a sign that says this is the trail head of Drippings Spring Trail right nest to the road, but in the past and on the maps the sign was a mile away from the road at the rim of the Canyon. Dont get your self into trouble read the signs and ask a ranger at the Maswicks Transportation Center Back Country Office. Once you reach the point bikes are not allowed you don't need a lock, there is allmost never anyone out there, you are really in the middle of nowhere. The trail goes about a mile down into the canyon where there is a tiny seep that drips from a huge overhang, I drink the water with out filtering, you take the risk if you want to. The one mile hiking part is probably a 500 foot descent.

Similar Products Used: Also at the "four way intersection" i refered to you can go stright to the Waldron Trail head and hike on it(about a half mile)to the rim for a nice secluded view of the canyon. If you go right at that same intersection it takes you to the Abyss (find a map). This is a good way to make it into a loop, and is also what i did allmost every day when I lived up there
