Description

Christmas Tree Loop is a loop off the Lone Cactus Loop. It is impossible to miss, after mile 4 and plus .6 on Lone Cactus you'll hit an intersection with a Christmas tree looking thing with a bunch of medals, tubes and crap hanging from it.

This is the best Fantasy Island has to offer. If you are going to ride Lone Cactus Loop, ride this loop too. It is not that long. It's fast, cruisey with a couple features and small jumps. I typically ride this multiple times, because it's so good.

It isn't a major workout or anything, just a ton of fun. Enjoy, and watch out for the 'ole cacti.

Jumping Cholla Cactus and Prickly Pear Cactus on the Bunny's Revenge Loop at the Fantasy Island Trails in Tuscon AZ

Looking up "The Slide" from near the bottom.  The picture hardly does it justice.

Narrow bridge with loose sounding boards. Looks harmless enough...

I've donated DNA at the bottom of the shaft, as have many others.  This intimidating drop is remarkably smooth due to the pavers stones, but there is a quick left and immediate climb waiting on the other side.

A warning? Or an invitation!  You'll have to take the Christmas Tree Loop to decide.
