The three loops in south Pinetop-Lakeside are an excellent example of why people—not just retirees—are starting new lives in the White Mountains. Just a mile away from condo and housing developments resides Sitgreaves National Forest. The first really cool mountain biking route as you enter Sitgreaves from Bucksprings Road is Trail 633, the Springs Trail. This trail is an even mix of super-fast flat singletrack weaving through pine and juniper forest, and tricky, technical passages through rock gardens. Racers blasting through full-throttle can finish the entire trail in about 45 minutes. However, few riders will be able to ride this route without dabbing. One switchback in particular is sure to kick off even the most experienced riders. Trail Surface: Singletrack.
