The west portion (about two miles) is easy paved, while the rest is singletrack of varying (poor) quality, it could use some work. Great views as the trail hugs the edge of the Mogollon Rim.

 "Singletrack of varying quality" translated to a trail that needs a lot of work. Too bad--it sits on one of the most prime locations in all of AZ. The views and setting are great, but it needs to have a ton of rocks removed and shrubberies beaten back.

 I agree with DrHog. The most eastern portion of this trail is very overgrown. The western portion to is an asphalt trail. If mountain biking I do not think it is a good trail. It would be a great hiking trail with awesome views!
