A fun trail that traverses around Deem Hills park with access to other steeper saddles.

Description

Deem Hills Circumference loop can be accessed on both the W and E side of the park. It is a nice, roughly six mile ride around Deem Hills park with several cruiser areas, along with a couple technical, rocky switchback areas. It provides access to a few steeper saddle trails inside the park.

The trail is very well marked, with some cool views of north Phoenix. In general it is fairly rocky, so bring tubes just in case. This trail is much less crowded than neighboring Thunderbird park. Enjoy!

This trail is no joke. It looks easy on paper but it's a rocky SOB.

This trail is no joke. It looks easy on paper but it's a rocky SOB. There a few big ruts from rain run off that will sure give you a challenge. I'd assume it's the same run off that has washed away what little dirt there was leaving a constant rock garden. Plenty of rocks that will stop you dead in your tracks, and even more that you will bash your pedals into. But good technical ride. Aug 20, 2017
Probably no the right trail for beginner/intermediate riders (which I am). Lots of very challenging sections, many of which I was not able to ride up or down (I probably had to hike 20-25% of the trail). Even my brother who is a more experienced rider who rode with me today had to hike a fair bit. I was feeling more of my hands and shoulders at the end of the ride very technical. Sep 20, 2017
