Beautiful trail winding through cacti and rock features parallel to Wildhorse trail but slightly more technical. This 2 mile long trail is 100% rideable in both directions and has great views of Four Peaks and Red Mountain.

       I believe this trail’s actual name is “High Horse Trail”. Best ridden west to east in combination with an out and back on “Wild Horse Trail”

       I must have had a dyslexic moment when I reported that it is best ridden west to east as I meant the opposite. There is a 200+ ft elevation loss going in the east to west direction. It's always more fun when your fueled by gravity.

       This trail is a lot of fun. Technical level is in the middle of Wild Horse and Horsetail. Kudos to whomever cut the trail.

       Rode this today. Didn't see the turn off to stay on Wild Horse Trail. A little more than I like to tackle but we made it through. Will pay better attention to GPS and trail.

       Great mountain bike trail! Best ridden east to west as a loop from Hawes/Wild Horse Trail. Needs some grade reversals and outsloping to be sustainalbe. Hopefully USFS will have a competent trail crew or a voluteer group work on this trail tread and make it more sustainable. Would love to help?

       Not sure what Spanky54 is referring to. High Noon is very sustainable, lots of grade reversals, no ruts, no erosion, holding up very well over the last few years. Maybe he’s talking about the trail above it that was decommissioned by Tonto NF.

       West to East: punchy ups and downs as you climb. A few of those ups are a bit technical but not too hard.
      East to West: a slower than expected descent due to many off camber turns where your front tire easily desires to slide out! Keep your front tire properly weighted and pick a good line to increase the flow factor!
