There are thousands of miles of trails and roads in the Gila National Forest. Many of these trails are accessible by mountain bike. Roads that wind through the forest are ideal for cycling. Indeed, the forest is the backdrop for the professional Tour of the Gila.

The climate is warm and dry (always carry extra water) and many miles of the trails are open during the winter. During the summer monsoon season dangerous storms can develop in the afternoon; it is best to ride early in the morning.
