I rode it out and back from the North end. Super fun. No hikers. Maybe my favorite trail in Prescott. The perfect balance of climbing and descending.

Elevation gain is off. More like ~400' of climbing from Badger/Ranch intersection to 69. Super fun trail. Fast, flowy, well-built, and scenic. One of the best downhills in Prescott.

I rode from senetor past boy scout a few miles which got really fun. Little bit of chunk, switchbacks, berms, flowy spots. Cool views right from the gecko. Solid climb back up but well worth it!

Sweet, fast, flowy descent...sunset/night riding especially yields an unparalled Prescott city skyline views! Take a gander from the metal bench...totally worth the climb!

Super fun trail if you park off senator Highway and take it East Bound its the Best way. I would only recommend shuttling this trail because to come back up it its long. *DO NOT GO UP 9854 ACCESS ROAD TO GET BACK* I would recommend having 2 vehicles one to park at the bottom off of walker rd and then have the other at the trail head off senator Highway. Very fun long downhill Only go eastbound

As of May/June the first half sucks because someone walked their horses on it when it must’ve been wet, but after a few miles it gets good. Loved the grooves on the way back! You really get pumping and flowing! Beautiful views too!

Good trail but heavy logging bolldozer tracks scatter everywhere across n down trail. Use the trail to north until this on has a few more months to rehab. It will return to b a great woodsy singletrack soon

Lots of open grassland but trail has many many water bars, err, jumps so loads of fun. Best with a dropper post.
Would not be interesting going up.

Super fun trail, I wish I would have started up top rather than jumping in at the boy scouts intersection as that trail was a joke. I’d try this one again from the top it has quite the mix and flows nicely if you keep some speed ????????
