A challenging climb with fun swoopy sections thrown in for fun.

Jeff Combs

Overview

Description

The trail starts from the north side of the Trail 62 / Ranch Trailhead. Be sure to look both ways as you cross Walker Rd. and the other campground access roads. When you get to the Green Gate the real climbing starts. The best part of this trail is heading back towards the trailhead - there's lots of downhill goodness.

Rained yesterday, totally dry. Logging of the area is obnoxious in ride up but hardly noticed it flying down. 14.4mi

There are giant mulcher machines in the section after you cross the highway. Avoid this section until they're gone. They're dangerous log spitters ... — 1h 30m

Getting forecast...

I loved this ride. I live in phoenix and took a day trip up to prescott with a friend to do some biking. It was raining pretty hard that day so we stopped in the bike shop to get some advice on which trails to take and he recommended this one for not being to washed out and muddy. While we certainly still got soaked fording through streams and the constant rain drizzle, this ride was great. The uphill isn't too killer and the scenery is really pleasant. I would definitely recommend this ride. Aug 19, 2014


Drinking water is available on the camp grounds. Look for the bathrooms as you cross over the roads. I'm not sure if all the sites have a spigot but I found at least one! Apr 24, 2015
