Long Draw Route For Dirt Biking

The 13th most popular offroad motorcycle trail in Arizona.

Northeast of Payson near Heber in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, the Long Draw Route is a 30 mile loop through ponderosa pine forest for dirt biking. Start either at the Long Draw North trailhead at Chevelon Crossing or the Long Draw South trailhead at Chevelon Lake. The route travels mostly along established forest service roads, which are either well-maintained gravel or dirt. The quality of the roads deteriorates near the southern trailhead.
