      Trails on the northwest side of the Catalina Mountains. Lower trails in Catalina State Park and the 50-year trail are relatively smooth, while upper 50-year trails are more technical, with many rock slabs and drops. Riding in the 50-year trail system requires a current AZ State Lands recreation permit.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
