“A popular mountain bike ride right off the Scenic Loop in Ajo; a favorite of the locals!
— Matthew Thomas
This is a popular loop right off the Scenic Loop
that heads around North Ajo Peak! It incorporates existing BLM roads in the area.
Roller coaster-like BLM roads make up this ride. Don't let the fact that they are BLM roads fool you. This route can bee quite technical and fast if you want to make it that way.
About 1/2 of the way through, there is a bench under a tree if you wish to take a break, before riding the cobbled, dry creek bed. Beautiful Organ Pipe and Saguaro Cacti abound in this area. You are riding in the heart of the Sonoran Desert so be sure to take in the scenery.
History & Background
Old mine shafts and pits dot the area so be mindful.
