Two connecting trails that make the hardest trail on Mt Lemmon.

Description

Kellog and Incinerator usually run together. It's really a one-direction trail. Incinerator Ridge is possibly the hardest trail on Mt. Lemmon and also the newest trail built by the Forest Service on the mountain.

Kellog is a very short trail in between two other trails so it makes sense to include it as one with Incinerator Ridge. It starts about mid-way on Mt. Bigelow. There's a 4-way junction at the mid-way saddle. The junction is marked with a metal sign. Kellog heads off to the southeast from here. It's techy in spots but overall there's nothing too hard. Then it comes to a dirt road, and Incinerator Ridge continues in the same direction.

Incinerator is also marked with a metal sign and is easy to follow. This trail is extremely difficult. It's loose, steep, rocky, and has very tight switchbacks. This trail will take you out to the parking lot where Green Mountain starts.

Wow, this trail is sketcy, and by sketchy I mean awesome! The cruxes are mostly steep, tight, exposed, and/or ledgy switchbacks; but there's a ton of steep, loose, and chunky stuff too. Also lots of low-speed water bar drops. If you have decent skills and want to improve them, ride this trail! Oct 24, 2015
You Az Mtb people know how to party! Fun stuff. You earn every inch of this trail in one way or another. Like riding down a mine shaft. I took my 8 yo dhill Boy on it even had him walking a few features bravo ! Feb 19, 2018
Definitely had to bail out of a number of spots but it's a great trail to push yourself on and have fun with! Apr 23, 2018
