Marysvale Not-So-Flat Professional Review and Guide

"This ride, a simple out-and-back of 13 miles (6.5 miles each way), is technically quite easy, but it offers a real test of your aerobic conditioning, as it gains almost 2,000 feet of elevation. Over the early stretches of the ride you’ll pass an eclectic array of habitations and yard art. It’s a true hill-climb challenge, with history to boot. After about four miles, where you enter the national forest, you’ll pass a greeting sign for the “Canyon of Gold Driving Tour.”

Here you can pick up a self-guiding brochure containing interpretive information keyed to numbered posts seen along the final 2.5 miles. Gold mining took place at least as early as the mid-1860s in Bullion Canyon, and possibly much earlier—as the brochure suggests—during the Spanish conquistador days of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Near the turnaround you’ll pass a trailhead from which you can set out on a hike to Bullion Falls thence onward and upward, getting into some God-almighty gorgeous high country. General location: The ride begins in Marysvale."
