Not on that segment of the AZT. It just depends on who the land manager for the given segment of the AZT is. Forest Service handles Bellota so no ebikes. Any segment on Pima County Land Ebikes are not allowed. If any goes thru land owned by the State of AZ I think they are ok. You will need to just find out per segment that you are wanting to ride, but I think they are banned on a good majority of it.

First part of the trail from the ridge down to Milagrosa is quite techy. Be prepared for sections that imo are as challenging as the toughest sections in bug springs.

Somewhat over grown at the top. I'm still pulling cactus spikes out of my shins.

Trail La Milagrosa
Good ride, especially after the tequila tree. Sadly the tequila was gone (just knew I shoulda brought a bottle) but some kind sole left a bottle of whiskey, yup, that'll do Smile The first half could use some brushing as there was a lot of prickly things grabbing at every part of you and I munged some of the techy bits simply because I was trying not to bleed. Pretty easy 1.5 hour from melino even with picture and tequila/whiskey stops.

Agreed, not blue. East from Molino over the ridge and down is double black. Gorgeous and fun. Other than that, pretty blue or blue/black. Brush was really good for AZT standards. Expect a bit of catclaw to scrape you, but nothing major. Easy to follow but one wash crossing
