Update

A Tucson area classic with rolling drops to huge rock faces, this trail is great for expert riders.

Overview

Dogs: Off-leash

Description

This trail is difficult and technical, but is also full of "B line" options that head around the biggest obstacles. Huge granite rocks and slabs make for steep but easy climbing and 15ft-30ft rock faces make free riders smile from ear to ear. This trail is not for the novice or intermediate.

There are a few 15"-35" drops/rolls that will pucker your tush and send your saddle into your sternum (unless you have a dropper). Near the end is a long and steep rock face that will test most riders limits and even scare the ones who have to walk down.

While most of the B line options are work arounds, they in themselves can be very steep and twisting.The B lines are not marked but keeping your eyes open for bike tracks shooting off trail in odd places. These will almost surly lead you to very technical and steep rock faces.
