Description

Start off on smooth singletrack with intermediate riding, go down and up through a wash, and then look for a nice overlook on the left for views of the town. After then, continue on fun trail and descend to Oak Creek. You'll then parallel Oak Creek for about a mile. It's very pretty but the trail is littered with soccer-ball size polished-smooth rocks. So despite the lack of elevation change, the going is pretty slow.

Eventually you'll be below Midgley Bridge and highway 89. Cross the stream here, which may be a few feet deep (though you can probably stay dry by hopping rocks). Tough climbing leads up and out of the canyon. Take a left and you'll be at the trail's end at the Midgley Bridge trailhead and Oak Creek Vista.

Look out for poison oak along the creek bottom.

There might be a slight preference for the South-to-North direction, as described here, but it's good either way.

Hot in the sun, but once descended into the creek side trail it was fully shaded.

Rode from North to south. Technical at times with a water crossing over boulders in the water. Not a trail for beginners or inexperienced riders. 3.1mi
