Camp Beale Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Camp Beale Loop can be ridden clockwise or counterclockwise. Clockwise, the climb up to the top of the hill is longer but less brutally steep; but the reward is many switchbacks and a shorter, but steeper, descent. Riding the loop counterclockwise means facing some steep climbing right from the outset. The top of the ride provides two views: Kingman’s skyline with the Hualapais and the Black Mountains in the distance, and cows—lots of cows. The Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area resides on leased grazing land, so cyclists may find themselves sharing the trail with a single bovine or a large herd of calves, protected by bulls. Cows usually get out of the way in a peaceful manner if you ride toward them slowly. Trail Surface: Singletrack."
