The annual Arizona Trail charity event ride, also known as the AZT Jamboree. Typically held the 2nd Sat. in January this is a shuttled route ridden in the northbound direction along some of the best sections of Arizona Trail. While the track trends in the downhill direction, don't be fooled, there's roughly 4000' feet of elevation gain over the 40 miles. The first 15 miles are the toughest with some short sections of hike-a-bike for the average rider. What follows is true mountain biking bliss, 20 miles of cruising singletrack through the Sonoran desert.

This trail is far from overgrown and a great flowing blue trail ride. The person who posted this as "overgrown" and "very dry" either doesn't ride much or doesn't want the trail used. This is Arizona and everything is dry. We can not start from the trail head because the Forest Service has locked the gate which is another reason for suspecting a false report. We can climb under the barbed wire or over the gate fence. There are no signs marking "Private Property" or "No Trespassing". This is public land and I'm a tax payer. Having to leave my car on the side of a busy highway and climb through barbed wire doesn't sit well. Will post pictures shortly. Beautiful countryside. I'm planning a drop and pick because this one is a bit much to ride uphill right now.

Not too dusty, trails are mostly clear. Gotta few over growing bushes that can get you if your not paying attention and a few prickly pears on the path. Other than that, its great.
