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

Route finding can be challenging when early season conditions exist! Check with Trail Steward, TORCA (Tucson Off-Road Cyclists & Activists) for trail condition updates.
