The economy got you down? Want to find a way clear your mind? This is your trail my friends. At times this trail ought to be rated High Intermediate, though most of it is Beginner, because you'll encounter some steep slopes and rough terrain. For a kid from Michigan - this trail is all dry, arid and desert air. You'll want to go in the winter months or super early in the morning. Just make the trip - you'll have a blast out here. I highly recommend this trail.
This trail is rated a beginner trail for the South Mountain Park/Preserve network of trails. However, there are certain trail aspects which make portions of it an intermediate trail. After a severe rainstorm it can even become a hike-a-bike in washes. So inexperienced riders should never take a long ride without proper gear including: water, spare tubes, a First Aid kit, and a cell phone. Best to avoid when the weekend warriors are out.
Nothing too difficult here, but lots of fun, fast singletrack. Lots of dips and doodles to play with if you're paying attention. Watch for hikers, especially during the first 3 or 4 miles.
