Trail Overview

Cedar Mountain is a 2.7-mile-long single track that is part of the Sovereign Single Track System. From the south, it starts by climbing up a desert mesa with chunky volcanic rocks, then winds through big volcanic boulders. Throughout the trail, it goes up and down lots of rolling desert mesas, with lots of tight maneuvering with moderate rock ledge obstacles. The trail is full of slab slickrock, chossy sections of loose rock, and lots of chunky embedded rock that makes for a bumpy ride. There are fast sections in between the harder sections while on the side of the mesas as it goes along a rim. There are nice views along the edge of the mesa in this scenic landscape. It crosses an intersection with Sovereign Single Track that will take you toward the harder trail, Terrys. After this intersection going north, the trail has a couple of easy switchbacks that are wide and smooth, and lots of windy sections and small ledges. The trail goes right next to several huge fissures in the ground that are cool to see, and scenic green dirt. This is a fun one to ride, and you can make it a loop with the next segment of Cedar Mountain Canyon.

The system is most easily accessed off of Willow Springs Road or Dalton Wells Road. Most of the trail system can be ridden over the course of a couple days. You'll likely share the trails with mountain bikers. The trails are best in spring, fall, and winter, as the area is extremely hot in the summer.
