Gila Mountain is now a favorite training loop for mountain bike racers, triathlon soldiers, and adventure cyclists of all stripe. At 27 miles long, it’s a multi-hour grind guaranteed to keep your heart rate up while providing ample opportunity to hammer extremely hard along the railroad and canal. During “snow bird” season, keep eyes open for cars and RVs that use the train and canal roads as a shortcut. Trail Surface: Jeep roads, canal roads, and pavement.
