.....this is definitely primo Az singletrack. I wouldn't go in there less than intermediate in the skill dept. (unless you plan on pushing your bike a lot). Challenging, fun and interesting, there's a little of everything: roaring straightaways, narrow trails with steep exposure and real quick descents. I looked for the abandoned mine shafts and holes and didn't see any, but they're supposed to be all over. Go for it!
This is some of the best riding I have found in Phoenix. There are many singletrack loops to choose from. Lots of winding sections with cactus lining the trails. Not nearly as crowded as South Mountain.
