Overview

While the area in total only has about 6 miles of trail, if you do them all it will be a workout.

Park at Phippen Museum just of off Hwy 89 north of Prescott. The trail heads under the highway and you come out in an area where a Lockheed C-121G Super Constellation crashed on February 28, 1959.

Need to Know

Parking at the Constellation Trails Trailhead is $3.

Description

Once past the memorial which has actual debris from the crash, you can take the trail in any direction. Be ready for flowy singletrack with plenty of rocks thrown in to play on. You'll encounter steep short climbs, drops and be on the look out for the "B Lines" that are more technically challenging.

Very technical rock climbing here. Not much for speed or flowy single track. This is more for full sus. bikes; it's lots of balance and low speeds. 1.5mi

Technical challenging trails. Not very intermediate friendly. You need power, balance, and technique in spades to be able to ride these trails. Sce... — 1h 30m
