Dry - Nothing technical just take it easy on the corners if you are going fast because of dry, slick dirt. History

Getting forecast...

A beautiful flowing course with perfectly banked corners and amazing views.

Description

This is a brand new trail southeast of Tucson. The non-technical, flowing trail has easy-moderate climbs depending on fitness. The entire loop is newbie friendly and the twisty bits are very well-banked.

The trail can be ridden in both directions but it was built to ride clockwise. This is a 6.5-mile trail built especially for racing but is open every day, besides race days, for riding. Do as many loops as you can handle. Expect nice berms and jumps put into the right spots.

Great rolling singletrack! Very similar to the Desperado loop at Sweetwater but longer. 6.8mi

Really great trail system. I've said since moving to Tucson that we needed some fast flowing single track. I love the riding on the mountain and Starr pass and such and that's primarily why I moved here, but it is great to have a fast fun single track trail that is welcoming to beginner friends and the like. Thanks SDMB for making this happen! Sep 29, 2018
Just a little PSA. My friend and I went out to the trial to check it out. In the parking lot a PCSO duputy approched us and let us know that someone has been messing with the trails. Setting up nails and stringing cables across the trail at chest level. Pretty shady stuff. We thanked him and went on our ride. We didn't encounter any thing like that so I assume they removed it (we only did the south trail though). I understand some residents don't want people out there, but this is way over the line. Pima county tax payers have just as much right to access as the "locals". And cerainly have a right to not get clothslined by a cable across their path. Other than that it's a good trail and tons of fun. Oct 16, 2018
We were going to ride out there this week but after reading the comments we will stick with another area where we don't feel as if we are bothering anyone. I certainly don't want to be a part of catching a cable across my chest, getting a nail in my tire or having our truck messed with while we are riding...it's too bad that a noisy few (dirt bikes???) have to spoil it for quiet mtn. bikes. But I would be upset also if large events were taking place where I could hear therm. We will stay out of the area totally. 18 hours ago
