Not a pump track. But still fun up and down through a wash.

It wasn't super easy to find, but we got there. The trail isn't too bad but not really a pump track. More of an up hill back and forth climb and then a down hill section that puts you at the start. My son (9) and I are noobs and the 2 mile track took us 20 minutes to ride. We did it twice. Not bad, but a ways from Tucson and we didn't know where to park. It appears the track is on Private Land, but is ridden and not hard to follow. Not sure I would go back. My son enjoyed it, but we will try other trails before going back.
