Beginner 10%, intermediate 80% and advanced 5%, expert 5%, 4.5 mile MTB trail is a bi-directional singletrack that for a big part follows and crosses the Dry Creek Wash (not wet weather friendly). The hill between the wash and the Cultural Park trailhead offers the best downhill or climb experience. A small hill between wash crossings about 2.6 miles from the Dry Creek Road trailhead offers a short but brutal rock garden ride section. There is no preferred direction and the trail is a great connector for several other fun loops.

       The newly re-routed section between AZ Cypress Alt. and AZ Cypress is super fast and fun in both directions.

       A few parts are fun to the north but overall this trail is real crappy.

       This trail from dawa south is not good. In and out of the riverbed. Ugh. Off the bike a lot. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

       The previous review was spot on. There were a lot of river bed crossings and a lot of sand. We had to walk a lot of spots on the trail.
