Recommended Users: Mountain Bikers, Hikers, Equestrians. Two-track and Singletrack trail. 1.2 miles in length. Difficulty: Moderate/More Difficult (IMBA Trail Difficulty Rating System). This trail climbs and dips and sweeps around several tight switchbacks in order to reach the separate mesa that the Rim Rock Trail encircles. As alluded to in its name, the trail follows the rim of the mesa and passes though a couple of rock gardens. Look for striking rock formations such as sand filled potholes and highly eroded sculptures. Also look around at the great views of Boomer Hill, Santa Clara Peak, Cove Wash, and the distant White Hills. Having not experienced recent cattle hooves or OHV use, the mesa is a good place to see interesting desert plants, unusual reptiles, and cryptobiotic soils. Please keep it that way by staying on the trail.The singletrack portion of this trail is a loop and can be biked in either direction. Several other “Rim” trails can be reached from Rim Rock: Rim Reaper, Rim Ramble, and Rim Runner.
