Mead's Rim
Mead's Rim is a short singletrack along the eastern edge of a mesa north of Price. It's rarely ridden by itself -- most riders use it as an occasional return-trail after riding Luke's Trail. The singletrack on the mesa edge is nice enough, but most riders will absolutely hate the hike-a-bike down from the mesa at the southern end. There's about 250 vertical feet of elevation loss as you proceed north-to-south over the first two miles. The trail is packed dirt with occasional rocky sections.

   0.5   Keep R on smaller road (don't go to pump station)
   0.8   Just after road splits around junipers, spot opening in fence, with DT on R
