The 1.97 mile Adobe Jack trail starts at the south end at the Adobe Jack parking lot and the north end at the Jordan trail near the popular Sink Hole. The estimated mountain bike skill rating for Adobe Jack is: Beginner-35%, Intermediate-60%, Advanced-4%, Expert-1%. The trail has numerous narrow climbing sections that an advanced intermediate rider may have to walk. The routing of the trail takes you through several dry wash sections that makes the route fun to ride. This trail is the west part of a loop that can take you around the whole Soldier Wash area. The most fun direction to ride Adobe Jack is north to south, but if you are going to do a BIG Soldier's Wash loop by including Jordan, Javelina and Crusy2, I think riding south to north on Adobe Jack is more enjoyable.

Access Info

Direct access to the south end of Adobe Jack is from the Adobe Jack trailhead. The north end of the Adobe Jack trail can be accessed from the Soldier's Wash trailhead.

      2 short mud sections in the shade (10ft), elsewhere ideal.

       Rode it from red to green after going from Devil's Kitchen >> Jordan >> Javelina and was pleasantly surprised by the speed and flow in this direction. I was expecting to "climb" back up to Soldier's Pass but it's one of those trails where you don't really feel the elevation gain because it's up and down with good flow the whole way. Definitely intermediate and definitely a fun rip in either direction.

       Have rode a few times now and this trail has good uphill flow(South to North). Great way to get back up to the downhill oriented(North to South) Grand Central, Jevelina etc.

       Great climbing trail. Barely feels like a climb and has just enough flow and tech.

       This is an incredibly fun and easy climb for what you get going down Grand Central or Javelina. If you can put down some watts, you can go 15 mph+ on the last portion of the climb! Also, the flow and short techy bits would make a spectacular DH in itself. Woooohoooo.

       Rode Adobe from the parking lot straight to Soldier pass intersection. The beginning of the trail has some technical climbs and drops that might required a little push. After a quarter mile, trail gets flowy and fun. Along the way you have some impressive views, make sure you stop for that memory pic. Soldier pass is the destination
