Beautiful views, remote location. Rough single track with super fun and fast descents with challenging switchbacks. Plenty of pedaling with short, punchy climbs. This trail can be connected to La Milagrosa, which is a Black/Double Black Diamond trail. Makes for an epic day of riding Difficult to access, logistically, as the trail starts 12 miles up Redington Pass Road, which is extremely rough terrain with lots of traffic. Consider a shuttle! www.homegrownmtb.com

       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.

       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.
