32nd Street aka Devastator is an excellent descent off of Mormon. It is steep, fast, and loose. Take your time and get to know the lines as the consequence for failure is high. There are many ways to incorporate this into a larger ride. Once you get down, you can take the canal path back to the Javelina Parking lot to get access back into the park.

This social trail is currently unsanctioned, but it is planned to be adopted in coming years as the Highline Connector Trail according to the South Mountain Trails Master Plan.

This trail is unsanctioned.

Disclaimer

This trail is very steep and fast, be aware that sometimes people will hike up this trail.

      Monsoons last night and dirt is perfect. Definitely some new ruts and moved rocks to make it a little extra spicy.

      Do yourself a favour and keep peddling up for Mormon or Geronimo.

      Easy access off mormon. Great fast decent that is steeper and more loose than cdl or Geronimo, but way less switch backs. It took me about 10min on the canal path to get back to the javalina/beverly parking lot. This would be a brutal HAB if you were to ride up. Most of the trail is covered in shale especially the steep parts, don't ride up!

      Just rode this trail twice on Sunday after the rain and it was a blast. This is what I look for love the steeps on this. It wasn't that loose do to the rain the prior night. Will add this to my list of routes.

      Easier than Geronimo. Less rocky tech, no tight switchbacks. Some really nice trail mixed with some steep

      AKA Devastator. Very fun, fast, loose and at times technical descent. Only one rocky, technical super small climb section, the rest is fast downhill. Interesting alternative to Nation or Mormon DH, and you're guranteed some solitude here, a real rarity on SoMo.

      I guess you could try riding it up, but good luck finding any traction.

      This trail is extremely loose, rocky and steep. Although I am sure there are those who could ride it’s entire length downhill, I was not one of them. It’s a total hike-a-bike if you want to climb it.
