Beginner 10%, intermediate 70% and advanced 20%, 3.4 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack that is twisty has buffed section and is up and down with several technical sections riders will enjoy. The trail tread is a mixed bag of packed dirt, rocky surfaces and sections of slickrock that is fun to ride by higher skilled riders. There is no preferred direction and the trail is a great connector for several other fun loops.

       Tough downhill at the north end and no easy way back once you commit to the final downhill. However a great river scene to reward you for the difficult downhill.

       One of my favorites in the area because it has a lot of variation in terrain and geography. On the north end after a very steep descent, you link up to a section that runs along Oak Creek which is very shady and cool!

       Took this West to East on the way from Hiline and Baldwin with a short stop at the creek. Very hard and steep uphill near the beginning that you have to walk your bike up. Later on when it snakes around Cathedral rock is a very nice, fast, and wide bare rock trail(relatively flat). After that you'll find some short, fast, and flowy descents. But it doesn't last very long because as you approach the road crossings(which are tunnels that go underneath AZ 179)it's all uphill with some short flats. Recommend it as appose to Easy Breezy.
