Really liked riding this section. So much better than the original Sonoran mostly because it's actually all rideable.

Fountain Hills did a great job designing and building this bike bypass trail as an alternative to the original Sonoran trail. It's nice...

 This is a good trail in both directions. Good climbing with fun downhill bits both ways. Fun way to access the AK trail from Dixie Mine as an out and back to Sun Rise or an around the mountain through the passes
