Description

The Spine runs from Lost Arrow Trail - An easy to intermediate sustained climb up to some more trails. down to Oxbow Trail - a short uphill ride through some loose gravel.

If your goal is to head downhill, it's best to take this one from west to east. It is an old road which offers alternate lines: easier and more difficult. The upper west end has a very chunky line for the more technical rider. If you're looking for a moderate climb, take this one from east to west.

While the map signs shown this trail continuing east from the Oxbow intersection, this section is now blocked and closed off for erosion recovery.

There are prickly friends everywhere! Don't forget to bring your tweezer! Or just don't fall on one of them...

A little bit of climb will give you the Tucson Vista and Catalina.
