Cypress Thicket is a 18 mile loop trail located near Payson, AZ and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
We went to find this trail for mountain biking. I don't know if the area had a fire since this was posted as a mountain biking trail, but our GPS brought us an hour into the forest service roads and then told us to go right. We were supposedly 3 miles away and the right was a wash. So, we never found the trailhead to this site. If this exists, new directions need to be posted or signs need to be installed. I liked the off road driving, however, the biking plan was ruined.
