“Experience a great 47 mile, two day shuttle ride!”— Aaron Camacho
Day 2: Ride multiple steep climbs past Davis Mountain; this is the most strenuous part of the trip. It is steep and loose in sections, and many may end up having to walk their bikes in places. After Davis Mountain, the descent begins with a 1,200 foot descent along a washed out and rocky road. This can be quite fun on a bike but the support vehicle and those without full suspension may be cursing. (WARNING!!!!!: If using a support vehicle, high clearance is needed).
After the descent, you weave into multiple valleys with climbs on the other side. You then begin my favorite part of the ride: a long but flowing descent through rolling hills and creeks until you reach the turn-off to the Crist Cabin Road # 2401 (Little City of Rocks). Stay left continuing west on this road for a couple miles to the junction with Burnt Wilson #2410. Take a right onto Burnt Wilson (option two is to stay on the dirt road and ride to the highway).
Burnt Wilson is a rougher doubletrack. It is not well-maintained if at all. Sections are quite rocky with a few dry waterfall sections that are fun in their own way (maybe not for the support vehicle). Just before reaching the highway, take a left to head up a dirt road to the parking area to regroup (or collect a car).
It's a beautiful two-day ride complete with lots of wildlife, horned lizards, elk, deer, etc.
