Overview

This section of the AZ trail is one of the easiest. It can be ridden as a stand alone out and back ride starting at either the Gabe Zimmerman trailhead or the Sahaurita Rd trailhead, or in conjunction with the sections of AZ trail on either end of it.

Description

The trail is mostly flat with packed sections of trail to zip you right through. The trail twists and turns and goes up and down to maximize your fun. There are a couple of culverts plenty tall to ride through, as you have to go under I-10 (mile 1.5) and Hwy 83 (mile 5.5).

There really isn't anything descript about parts of this trail, just typical AZ dirt with a few rocks sticking up here and there.

Great beginner trail. Slightly uphill on the way out which made for a fun ride back.
