Likely In-Season!
Gray Fox Trail was created as a connector to the Competitive Loops area. It is a short multi-use trail inside White Tank Regional Park, at the North end of White Tank Mtn Road. This short trail starts at a nice big parking lot and can be connected to Ford Canyon Trail via Ironwood Trail for multiple shorter or longer loop options.

This would be a great trail for beginner mountain bikers to test their pedals on. Please be aware of hikers in both directions. Wildflowers are bound to be abundant in spring months. Plenty of cholla and saguaros to ogle at along the way.

This would be an easy out and back for a family with young kids, good alternative to the high traffic Waterfall Trail. Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on leash. Mountain Bikers are also allowed on this trail and are not required to be on a leash.
