Southwest of Alpine in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, the Hannagan Meadow Loop is a great route (6 mi./400) for encountering wildlife and for spinning those knobbies on a pleasant mountain bike ride along meadows above 9,000 , through tall-treed forests and groves of aspen. There is plenty of camping in the area and opportunities for more biking are close at wheel on the Ackre Lake Trail. Also, dont forget that the Blue Range Primitive Area, just across Hwy. 191, offers hundreds of miles of waffle-stomping good times for your walking shoes! Remember please—the Blue Range Primitive Area is managed like a wilderness and bicycles are not allowed!
The trailhead is located 23 miles south of Alpine on US191 at FS576 just before Hannagan Meadows.
Overall, Hannagan Meadow Loop is the 55th most popular mountain bike trail of all 103 mountain biking rides in Arizona.
