Bear Jaw Groove 6-Hour MTB Race
Race Details:

COURSE DESCRIPTION​
The 13-mile loop course is tight, smooth, single-track connecting to a primitive fire road with a sustained climb and a few roots and rocks. From the top, it transitions into a motorized track, which is fast and flowing with one or two rock gardens. Then back to single-track to finish the race. The course is fast and fun, accessible by most recreational riders. And yes, you can ride it solo, as a duo or a team of 4+. Are you ready to "grin and bear it"?

I rode it last week. Felt the trail had just been cut, there was lots if debris on the trail, loose tree branches and dangerously low tree branches smacking your head and face. As well as grass and soft dirt which made it much slower feeling than expected. Once you finally hit the downhill it has a few fun rock gardens but the moon dust is insane. You have to back off whoever is in front of you to see and breathe. I just didn't find much excitement on this course. Almost any trail in Flagstaff is better. My apologies If this felt negative but I'm glad I rode it before paying for an event on these 'trails'.
