Trail Overview

The Rim Ruins Trail is an interesting trail to say the least. Named for the ruins and its adjacent proximity to the Coconino Rim, this trail leads through what looks like an old homestead, with out buildings and a corral. The trail itself goes through the underbrush and scrubbrush of the Kaibab National Forest. With the natural boundary of the Coconino Rim to the South, this area is more populated by pinon and mixed pine, with juniper trees, than the towering Ponderosas that call the rim and beyond home. Rocky and muddy, the trail boasts several off-camber mud ruts, while sneaky rocks pop up in the trail unannounced, as well as sneaky cactus lurking near the edge of the trail on the narrow sections. Other than that, there are no obstacles on this trail over 12", and cell service is limited, so offline maps are recommended.

Difficulty

Dirt or rocky road, typically unmaintained after rain or snow. You may encounter shallow water crossings and obstacles under 12" on the trail, including small ledges. Roads are typically one to two vehicles wide.
