Part of the Road Apple Trails System.

Turn right onto singletrack off of a dirt road that heads west from Glade Road/Country Road 1980 for the Road Apple West Trail for approximately ten miles of fun singletrack which is shared with dirt bikes. Very few dirt bikes or mountain bikes ride this section of trail. The southern portion of singletrack has had issues with ATV/OHV encroachment but gets better to the north with some nice views of the La Plata Mountains. 

There is some sand, but nothing too bad that would require plus sized or fat bikes. Combining this trail with Road Apple East Trail, Seven Sisters, Bong Rock, Rigor Mortis, Anasazi to Hood Mesa Rd Connector and Anasazi makes for an awesome loop that follows the Road Apple Rally Course. –MtnbProject Description.

Road Apple Trail is 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!
