“One of the best AZT segments. Hands down.”— John Geronimo
Leaving Alamo Canyon about 11.5 miles into this ride, you'll transition to AZT - Passage 16 - Gila River Canyons. On your way, you'll contour upwards amid the saguaros with some smooth sections. The trail is very well designed and maintained, so almost everything is rideable.
After crossing Telegraph Canyon and riding through tiny green oases, the trail ascends to two passes marking the high points of this section. From the end point, turn around to enjoy some more rolling terrain, back the way you came, to return to the trailhead.
Another ride to the south, if you'd like to continue is the AZT - Kelvin to Red Mountain section.
