Cook Canyon Loop Trails - Trail, Kingman, Arizona

Cook Canyon Loop Trails - Trail, Kingman, Arizona

DESCRIPTION

Fast hard-packed trail with some ups and downs but no serious climbs. See the city’s website for map. The northern network of trails are the Cook Canyon Loop Trails and the large loop to the south is the Monolith Garden Loop. The Camp Beal Loop Trail connects by going under the highway. A variety of different loops are possible. Staying in the Cook Canyon Trail area loops of 1-3 miles are possible. If you add the Monolith Garden Loop it will total about 6 miles. The maze of towering rock formations in this area must have reminded someone of the heads on Easter Island which are also named Monolith Garden.

Two possible trailheads both off of highway 93 just west of I 40. Metwell Drive is a half-mile from the interstate on the south side of the road. A mile farther also on the south side is another trailhead visible from the highway.

A good mix of sustained climbs (and descents), sandy/gravelly washes, and rocks. The trail is fairly well marked with rocks, and showed recent use by other riders and ranging cattle. The Monolith Gardens loop offers some great scenery - you could be on another planet and not know it, except for the odd sighting of I40.

Customer Service

Anti-clockwise from the trail intersection reached from the Metwell parking area. Just be careful on the faster downhills - the gravel washes out easy and you're in the pucker bushes! Keep an eye for the grazing cattle as well - make sure you don't end up between a cow and her calf.

Great scenic intermedate level trail. By far the most scenic trail in the area. Bring camera. 250' elev. change. Trail can become quite loose if it hasen't rained recently. Good trail for the advanced beginner to expert, as visibalty is good enough to ride fast, however everything out there will hurt if you crash into it.

Customer Service

Can start at any of the trail heads and ride any dir. Metwell TH is the best. I-40 exit 48, north 1/2 mi. Metwell TL, 150 yds bear R, Map boards at TH. Appx 8-9 total miles of trail on the west side of the road. ride to the east side for more trails.

Amazing trail! Has it all: fun twisty singletrack, small berms and jumps, 2-3' drops in places, climbs that make you appreciate the downhills, and downhills that keep you focused. Watch out for the pointy plants, but enjoy the views, which are amazing. Awesome rock formations and incredible vistas make this ride one of the best the area offers. Never crowded, and friendly locals!

Customer Service

Any, they're all fun!
