Menan Butte (R Mountain) - Trail, Menan/Rexburg, Idaho

Menan Butte (R Mountain) - Trail, Menan/Rexburg, Idaho

DESCRIPTION

steep, fast and loose. These trails are volcanic sand and loose basalt rock. Once you get going there is no stopping, you just finish it out or wreck. Some needs to be done on foot, it is just too rough. We road the southern lip of the butte on down. I am out of shape, so the climb up was a doozy.

There is no doubt that this trail is tough, but the Menan Buttes offer some good early season riding for those of us who live in Driggs, Ashton, even Jackson Wy. It takes some searching around to find the good trails and not just the random 4X4 roads, but the geography and geology are great and there is some great slickrock. If you are stuck in the snowy higher valleys, head toward Rexburg and check it out.

This trail sucks!... unless your really bored while attending summer classes at BYU-Idaho, then the trail is a must.Once you have ridden the trail you can tell all your friends about how stupid it was to push your bike up the hill, ride the edge, which is pretty cool and then rid the bike down through the sand. I would say, If your out of state, it is a must do just to say you have done it, then go ride some real trails at Kelly Canyon.

This trail is not a bike trail. I don't know who put this summary on this site, but it doesn't belong here. I tried riding the trail once, and that was enough for me. If you want to try it, let me know so I can come watch you try and push your bike up the side of a sand mountain for 45 minutes so you can ride around the rim which will only take you another 15 minutes.
