“Panorama is part of 200+ miles of nonmotorized trails in the Apache-Sitgreaves NF of NE AZ.”— Nick Lund
Halfway down the descent you'll see the Sawmill connector trail, which connects you to Timber Mesa trail.
Now starts a steady climb through more twisty Ponderosa singletrack. Popping out to a jeep trail for just a short bit you hang a right and head up Twin Knolls with another great vista from which the San Fransisco Peaks in Flagstaff can be seen on a clear day.
It is a fast descent down the back side of the knoll, with a few twisty singletrack turns back to the trailhead.
About 1/2 mile from the trailhead, there is a mellow shortcut for those who prefer to avoid the climb up Twin Knolls.
This trail is open to ride in both directions. For a rocky descent followed by a long steady climb and great views ride clockwise. For a short steep climb, long smooth descent, and technical rocky climb ride counter clockwise.
