One of the more technical trails in the central area.

Overview

Features: -none-

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.

JAGGED, challenging, heart pumping...You have a "spine" and balls if you can conquer the Spine. I find this trail to be a much better ride on a front shock or rigid bike. There are lots of points where you like to have the power. The guys at tucsonbikerentals.org are the only people renting mountain bikes in Tucson. Check out this course at Tucson's club site at BikeTucson.com. Sep 10, 2017
