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.

      Loose and rocky, a few overgrown areas but nothin major. Tons of insects making kamikaze attacks on unsuspecting riders.

      Great trail with beautiful scenery. I rode this down to one of the lower dirt roads and then pedalled back up to my truck on the road. I would not recommend doing that though because the road has little to no shoulder on it and people drive crazy fast. Very sketchy. The next time I do it I will have someone drop me off at the top and take it all the way down.
