Off Roading

With more than 60 miles of trails designed for ATV, OHV, and snowmobiling between Pinetop-Lakeside and Clay Springs, Rainbow Lake Retreat is the perfect family vacation cabin for you if you and your family are into off roading.

Because you can also snowmobile here in the winter, the White Mountains are a year ‘round off roader’s paradise. Plus Pinetop-Lakeside is the home to the Sky Hi Trailhead, one of five trailheads for the famous Maverick Trail which is more like a series of interconnected trails because of its many branches.

Your family can explore the entire trail or take shorter rides by just going to one of the trailheads between Clay Springs and Lakeside instead.
