Southwest of Alpine and Hannagan Meadow in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, the Ackre Lake Trail is a 3.5 mile one-way mountain bike route above 9,000 feet out to Ackre Lake. Themountain bike route was designed with skiers and bikers in mind, but is also heavily used by hikers. This winding path meanders through aspen stands, broad cienegas as well as thick conifer forests. Opportunities to spy elk and deer are endless, as well as a quick glimpse of a bear or woodland hawk. There is also an interpretive brochure for the trail. While it may raise your adrenaline level to go fast, you may want to slow down a little and learn about mixed-conifer ecology and forest management in a high elevation forest.

The trailhead is located just south of NFS Hannagan Meadow Campground on US191, 22 miles south of Alpine.

Overall, Ackre Lake Trail is the 57th most popular mountain bike trail of all 103 mountain biking rides in Arizona. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Ackre Lake Trail including General George Crook Bike Trail, Georges Lake Trail, Hannagan Meadow Loop, Luna Lake Loop, Terry Flat Loop and Williams Valley Loop.
