This trail is not green. It’s super fun but it is not easy. Long segments hug the mountain with very narrow track with many large rocks. One false move would be trouble. Climbing on rocky terrain, curvy descents. The views are gorgeous and I am glad I did this first and then found all the Sandy trails to go up Mcdowell.

Popular green trail that can be ridden either direction, and has decent flow. Nice easy climb going southeast to northwest if you're looking to ride as a full loop of Pemberton, or take this "up" to ride any of the other green trails "down".

Compared to the south segment of Pemberton, this trail is green. It's not as smooth as Tonto or Bluff, but it's not really a blue trail. Just a few gullies, and a couple bits of loose over hard. Any beginner should not have much trouble with this.

Very popular trail, both directions. There's nothing difficult about it, but it does have just enough turns to keep you interested. Excellent views of the desert as far as the eye can see in many places.

This may have been the course at one time but is no longer correct.

60% of this trail is blue due to loose rocks and narrowness along the edge of hillsides. I took a beginner on it last week and they hike-a-biked for 3 miles. ????

Love the flow on this ride. It winds its way in and out of the ridges, staying just below the ridge line for the most part. Definitely a borderline blue as some of the turns and rocks take some skill. My favorite trail in McDowell Mountain Park.

Riding CW, this is a fun trail in the first 1/3 - flowy and much like other trails in the area like Bluff, Delsie, & Granite. But no way is this a green trail. Overall this is easily a blue. The climbs and descents are no problem for probably most riders, but newer riders and kids who would have no problem on other trails would definitely have had to hike it on this trail.

This’s trail is tons of fun going from north to south. It doesn’t have crazy downhill speeds but it flows the entire way down.

I agree a good chunk of this trail is green but ridden at speed it’s a blue.
