Description

Monte Carlo is one of the singletrack spines for the lower Prince Creek area trails. In comparison to Lower Monte Carlo (downhill only), this trail is a two-way trail that links Prince Creek Trail (climbing only) to Christmas Tree, and the bottoms ends of downhill only trails Ginormous and Father of Ginormous.

Most of it is tight and twisty as it makes its way through scrub oak. At times it opens up and one can get some speed and let things fly. Throw in some low hanging branches and an old car to ride over or ride around and you have yourself one heck of a fun trail.

You can either take Monte Carlo to the upper end to connect across Prince Creek Rd. to Creek Side, or along the way you can access Christmas Tree to climb up to South Porcupine or access Highline Trail via BLM Road 8320.

The Monte Carlo of Monte Carlo.  In the spring of 2014 the ramps were redone, but please still be careful when riding over the car.
