“If any mountain biker visiting Prescott were only able to do only one ride, I would take them on this.”— michael maier
Head down West Trail #318, which is fast and fun. Then, hang a left of Firewater Trail #325 for more fast and fun riding. Bottom out along Willow Creek before heading right up and over some cliffs looking down into Willow Creek. Stay right onto Noodle Trail for a little bit, and after crossing Spence Springs Road, look for Juniper Gate and another trailhead. Continue through some amazing winding singletrack up to Vista Trail, going left at a couple of big juniper trees. This tops out on Javelina Trail #332.
Go right up to the upper parking lot and look for West Side Story, which will take you down and around the whole valley. Stay on West Side Story all the way until you hit Russ T. Fender (and you want to hit Russ T. Fender—it's one of my favorites in the whole loop). Russ T. Fender eventually comes into Tatanka, and brings you back to Javelina Trail #332. Follow Javelina Trail #332 up and up until you hit West Trail #318 and back the Painted Rock parking lot.
