The east section of the Road Apple Rally Trail, from the Foothills parking area to the Aztec Hwy 574 is known as the Road Apple East Trail. Overall, this trail is a climb heading north with lots of whoops and some sandy sections. Continue west on the highway to reach the west section that heads back to town. Road Apple East Trail is 4.5-miles from point to point and gains approximately 265 feet to where it meets the Foothills Loop. –MtnbProject Description.
Road Apple Trail is a rolling singletrack, which starts on top of Kinsey Ridge. To the southeast, you can see the Navajo Reservoir and beyond, while to the north, you have an amazing view of the La Plata Peaks. This trail is so good, Ned Overend says it is his favorite trail!
