Description

This trail begins at the intersection of West Perimeter as it climbs up from 48th St. It climbs up several steep switchbacks before crossing Pipeline Road. From there it winds over Quemazon subdivision before dropping down to a canyon and ending on Ridgeway Dr. It's mostly volcanic slickrock, and is not a fast trail. It is fun to ride if you are craving some technical slow riding, and you are paying attention. The views are great from this trail.

There's a hike-a-bike from the lower third of the trail over to Quemazon trail through the canyon, or you can simply turn right on Ridgeway and over to the Quemazon trailhead.
