A nice warm-up or cool-down to the harder trails in South Mountain Park.

Description

Parking is often easier to find at the Beverly Canyon Trailhead, and you get to ride some very fun singletrack instead of the normal fire road on your way to Mormon, National, and all the other goodness of SoMo. Tacking this onto the beginning and end of a East National Loop ride is highly recommended!

From the Beverly Canyon Parking Lot, go west and a little south. You'll cross a few washes and eventually face a pretty significant climb to the top of a ridge. From there, it's a short and steep, but very doable, descent into Pima Wash, where you'll meet up with Mormon Loop Trail.

Rode this and a couple miles of east national on Friday, the area is pretty washed out and rocky from all the rain we have had. Oct 21, 2014


This was a difficult climb due to the rockiness and my noobishness. I went a bit up Mormon, but turned around due to being pretty well worn out. I also climbed up ridgeline and then turned around after a hiker recommended not going that way. Pretty fun going down, with a few 1 foot drops. With my hardtail it was a rattler. Dec 9, 2016
