       DH from the mine is so fun! Keep your bell ringing so the hikers don’t get scared of your intense speed.

       Discovered this trail on a whim and it's one of my faves in Phoenix! It has awesome views at the top and the descent down is steep, switchbacked, and lots of fun twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/best-mountain-bike-trails-in-phoenix-arizona

       Probably my favorite trail in the park. It is definitely difficult, but if you really crave a challenge, there are 2 steep sections towards the middle of the trail. Both have a fairly easy low line, and a difficult high line. At the top there is an old mineshaft, but I'm pretty sure someone relived themselves in there. The views are also pretty awesome.

       Finally rode this trail this trail today and absolutely loved it. Great chunk and gnar. Best advise I can give on this trail is speed is your friend and take the high lines in the switchbacks.

       Rode downhill, lots of variety the whole way, plus great views. Actually saw more hikers on this trail than any other, all headed uphill, keep a look out for them (and their puppies).
