50 Year Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The northern foothills of the Santa Catalinas are a birdwatching paradise. Any given morning will bring roadrunners, quail, red tailed hawks, gray cardinals, red cardinals, woodpeckers, Harris hawks…more than 100 species of birds are abundant in the area.

Besides birds, the 50 Year Trail area is also home to javelina, coyote, gila monsters, bobcats, deer, mountain lions, and the ubiquitous cattle that graze the state lands. This trail presents an incredibly lush version of the Arizona Uplands of the Sonoran Desert, a transitional zone just a few hundred feet below the tree line. The 50 Year Trail area is an extensive network of horse trails, old ranch roads, and game trails that have evolved into singletrack. There’s no specific route to be followed here, but there are three noteworthy areas to explore. Trail Surface: Mixed singletrack, doubletrack, and a few dirt roads. There’s some sand, some sharp rocks, and lots of opportunities to roll over fallen cacti. Bring sealed or thorn-resistant tires."
