This is a great ride with some steep climbs up the road up to Maus. There are som technical spots at the beginning of Maus through the notch at the head of the canyon. A few spots there that I usually just walk the bike through. The rest of this trail is a great ride back down to honeybee and back. The lower elevation stuff after honeybee is back on pavement to Moore rd.

Severely overgrown after this monsoon season.

Highly recommend riding up HB East, and back down HB West. West has some more fun rocky features to roll down, easy to flow down, plus some long smooth sections of fast cruising. Climbing up them would be not so fun.

I found this route really hard today for a beginner. Too much deep sand and drop offs/ elevation into washes. I felt like " weebles wabble but they do get up!" Wish I had turned onto the honey bee trail

Great trail! Love the long climb to beautiful views and the descent was really fun and left me breathing hard too! Hard to get to, but so worth it.

Top section here is advanced rideable but still some hike-a-bike. 4 yrs later from my first review. I'm a high-intermediate rider...but still was hard...if you don't mind the extreme hoisting of your bike for the half-mille to get to this section....it will be worth it to you but at least you'll have an accurate description before hand, unless of course you're superhuman????

An owner blocked the rod with his truck and was armed. I never saw a no trespassing sign on the road. I was fixing my fork earlier on the road see went ahead and set up. I’m a first timer out here and he was really heated about riders going out here. Bummer.

Easy trail except for the hairpin turns and some small gaps. But absolutely the most amazing views in Tucson!

There is now a huge gate and 'No Trespassing' sign on the east portion of this road. Requires some Indiana Jones moves to get around it. I didn't see the west portion, must be very faint.

One of the best trails that I have ridden in the Tucson area. Be aware that there can be a lot of hikers on the weekends.

Awesome 360 degrees views with tight singletrack...I would rate a 4.75 star not a 3 star as I accidentally did in the average rating section. When connected to the Wild Burro--upper section loop, it's a sweet ride!
