Overview

This is a great route if you only have a couple hours to ride. Strong riders can complete this in about an hour and a few minutes.

Description

Park at the Kachina Vista Municipal Park on Kachina Road. Ride back to the Phoenix Switchback Road and climb to the Northside gate. Ride up Bull of the Woods Road then take the Gold Camp Trail to Jean's Meadow. Rejoin the road and ride up the Third Mother climb to the top of the Steam Engine Trail.

Enjoy the ride down on the singletrack, crossing onto Sawmill Trail then onto Hike-a-Bike.

There is an option to make this ride shorter by accessing the Sawmill Trail at the Steam Engine Cutoff, and if you want to avoid the short and steep Hike-a-Bike section just continue down to the Gold Camp Trail by Jean's Meadow.
