A bit of a hike to start, but leads into some of the best downhill singletrack in Tucson.

Description

Begin by heading a ways up the man-made stairs to the top of the ridge before descending into the valley on the other side. You'll encounter a mix of some technical bits, a few switchbacks, and some fun, fast lines through the forest. Then another short run of stairs up to a great view of the range below.

Continue down along the ridge along a long fast section of singletrack to the highway below. From here you can call it quits or continue on to Molino Basin trail just down the road. Bug Springs can also be linked with Green Mountain above for longer days of riding.

Didn't have a shuttle, so rode it as an out and back, starting at the bottom. Pretty fun climb, with a few HAB sections going up and then really fun decent back. Lots of loose gravel and some techy sections, but overall super fun ride! Mar 31, 2017

Hike up thru manzanitas and then ride thru and oak, madrone and pine forest that has a small stream with water crossings after good rains. A view spot with hoodoos makes a great stop. The ride can be continued thru Molino Basin and then onward down tougher, more techy Milagrosa Trail to the Tucson basin. Feb 28, 2018
Absolutely fantastic, super fast decent! Worth every lung busting step at the beginning! May 2, 2018
