Local Info

Can be really busy there on weekends. However, the whole system is a mixed bag of great riding...one of my favorites in Tucson. There are many rocky trails, but Desperado is a smooth, flowing fun-fest. Alternatively, some of the technical stuff on Wildflower Ridge Trail is worth hitting as well.

This area has great riding and great scenery.

Food & Drink

After the Ride: Local Favorites

In-N-Out Burger Run into everyone you went to high school with who you hate!
Olive Garden Ugh, no one chooses to go to Olive Garden, you just end up here
Grain River Asian Bistro The Singapore Noodles are the best Chinese dish I have had since I left Shenyang, China. Lynn, the owner, is very sweet and customer service is fantastic.
