Llama Trail

Area Status: Open
Bell Rock from the Llama Trail

The Templeton Trail, Baldwin Trail, Llama Trail, Little Horse Trail, and Broken Arrow Trail are popular mountain bike trails. Although suitable for hiking, the Llama Trail is an alternate connector between the Little Horse Trail and Templeton trail for mountain bikers wishing to avoid the popular Bell Rock Pathway. The Llama Trail is marked at its intersection with the Little Horse Trail. There is a large dead pinion pine tree at the intersection. Before the Llama Trail was marked, bikers carved a broad area around the trail intersection attempting to locate the Llama Trail access. Please stay on the trail so the area can heal. Bikers should take care to use the Bell Rock Pathway to access the Bell Rock Vista parking area. The Court House Butte Loop Trail passes through the Munds Mountain Wilderness where bikes are prohibited. Please respect the protection afforded by wilderness areas on plants and wildlife.
