Awesomely fun, Lots of climbing and not smooth. Kind of techy, keeps you on your toes and great vistas. one of my favs

Description

First I did this as and out and back from the Pickets Post TrailHead off of 60. Second, I hope I can do this trail justice. The scenery is superb and the trail bed is great. Starting at the trailhead you'll start climbing. But it is not steady up. It rolls up and down, just mostly up. This section of the AZT is very well marked. The trail is almost entirely rideable. But it will challenge every one in places and most riders along the way. This is not a fast ride by any means. Don't get me wrong, in is not an incessant rock garden, just not a flow trail. There is a rhythm, just not a fast one. This might be the best trail I have ever ridden. Great mix of tech and climbing and back country. So bring plenty of water and food. I recommend tubeless every where, but especially Arizona.
