Mack Ridge offers great views of the Colorado and can be combined with several other trails in the Kokopelli trail system to form a loop. I rode counter-clock-wise from Mack Ridge to Lion’s Loop to Steve’s Loop for a really fun day. However, next time I’ll reverse it, as the the initial climb up Mack Ridge would be wicked fun as a descent.
Steve’s Loop is on my all-time favorite list. Riding the rim around the canyon is a huge rush, and the first time I came around the bend to see the exposure I nearly froze solid. But you have plenty of room to negotiate, and after a few times it’s not such a big deal. It’s a popular ride – I’ve actually seen folks do it on a tandem! If you try it be sure to stop and check out the Colorado River.
