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.
