Trail 15 is part of the Fire On The Rim mountain bike race that is held each September. This track is challenging but with the improvements the local trail crew has made over the past few years most of the heinous sections have been improved or re-routed. This trail is best ridden east to west (Highway 87 to Hardscrabble Road) but can be ridden as an out and back. From highway 87 the trail drops into a drainage. This section was double black diamond, eroded, and mucho challenging but alleviate the continuous maintenance it took changes were made that made it a bit easier and it has held up famously to heavy precip. The trail from there on is a series of short punchy climbs and downhills. The trail surface is hardpacked with occasional rock gardens. This is one of the prettiest rides in the fall due to the abundance (relatively speaking) of maples that populate the drainages. Late afternoon rides in August and September provide much shade due to big Ponderosas and Strawberry Mountain. Be advised that during the monsoon (July - early September) that rain can cause some of the clay sections to become very soft.... not fun, but the trail generally dies out fairly quickly (day or 2). I would highly recommend this trail to any intermediate rider with good fitness.

 Fun trail, but there are some nice rocky technical sections were I had to walk. Also, there are many switch backs so it was not a very fast trail for me, but overall I enjoyed the ride.
