Southeast of Alpine in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, the Georges Lake Trail (4.5 mi./500) has a few fairly hard uphill grunts and some quick descents. Although the mountain bike trail is located on a bumpy old logging road, the scenery is quite wonderful. Georges Lake is a good location for lunch or a quick breather and, if you are lucky enough, some waterfowl might be seen at the quiet little lake. Even though this trail begins right outside of Alpine, it has the reputation for being the least used route.
Overall, Georges Lake Trail is the 60th most popular mountain bike trail of all 103 mountain biking rides in Arizona.
