“A small and beautiful trail system that's perfect if you only have a small window to ride; if only it were longer!”— Phil Lucero
This is certainly no epic ride, but if you only have a small window and need to stretch your legs, it's perfect. The trail is hard to categorize as it does feature some significant technical hazards on the west loop, but it's otherwise fairly easy. It's marked a green/blue, but the west loop is really a straight blue. There are maps all along the way so it's nearly impossible to get lost.
There are two parking areas to access these trails. One is at the east end of Old Agua Fria Road and the other is off of Arroyo Hondo Drive (off of Old Las Vegas Highway, just past El Gancho).
If you visit, go at sunset. These foothills are especially gorgeous at dusk.
