      Packed sand and gravel single track with lots of loose rock. Very punchy, twisting and sharp turns. No flow for a mountain bike; quite slow due...

      Great ride! You can tell in some areas where the monsoon rains changed some of the trail, but nothing major.

       One of my favorite rides I've done so far! Gorgeous ride along the bottom of the Superstition Mountains with breathtaking views. Trail is medium with some hard parts, mostly technical due to loose rock and scree, but nothing impossible. 5/5 ride, and hidden away from most phoenixians, so less travelled than most rides such as usery and south mountain.

       Agree with the previous comment, more intermediate than black except for a couple of very short techy spots. Easily doable for an intermediate rider. I tossed in HooDoo to spice it up Wink
