Re: Any good mountain biking trails?

There's plenty of information on mountain biking on the mtbr.com forums. This link will get you to the Arizona forum:

Be sure to click on the link in the top right "Visitors - Read here first" as it has local (and some not so local) trail information.

Whoops...
When I saw this posted I never bothered to look at a calendar and for some reason thought it was on Saturday. I can't make it on Sunday so I'll have to pass on this one.
Another time...

Now that I read the directions... I'm not sure if this is the same trail??? The description I found appears quite some distance from Prescott.

Do you have any more info you can provide from our hike domer88?

I'm interested... I'll know for sure within a week of the hike. It'll be a year since I did the ridgeline and 3 years since I did the out-and-back from Carney T/H so I'm about due. As mentioned, we can still park just off the Peralta road, just not right by the trailhead. I live a few miles from the...

I have no issue hiking from Meridian Rd trailhead into the Goldfields or even the majority of Pass Mountain, both of which are actually part of Tonto National Forest. As such, I agree, access is completely free of charge. What I take issue with is avoiding paying a fee when making use of Usery Park ...

I understand the feeling about the cost... I came from Minnesota where for a Hennepin County (a metro county with many parks similar to Maricopa) pass it was $25/yr. So when when I moved here in '02 it seemed a bit much to fork out $75. Yet after buying a new pass every year since then, I no longer ...

Meet at Horse Staging Area instead???

I hike or mountain bike at Usery 2-5 times a week and it has gained quite a bit of use this year. To the point they made the Wind Cave road one-way with parking only on one side. So... due to the high amount of hikers on the Wind Cave trail and the shortage of parking there, I'd recommend meeting at...

I've seen many rattlers closeup throughout the year, but these are the ones I captured on camera. I tend to see quite a few because I seek them out. With hundreds of snake experiences (most when young when living in South Africa) over the years, I have no fear at all, only a healthy respect for them...

Hey, I feel for ya... While I'm open to a wider age range of gals who hike, love nature, etc., the bigger issue is finding ones even halfway close to my age who are fit, have the stamina for longer and/or more challenging hikes as well as being able to tolerate heat. I hike/mountain bike year-round ...

I'm with Teva Joe... Since I was introduced to Teva's 3+ years ago, they have been the footwear of choice. When I moved here I wore my Merrills (the ones I'm wearing in my profile pic) smooth in less than 6 months. But after 3 years on my first pair of Teva Terra-Fi's, I hiked the Supes Ridgeline in...

I hiked it just yesterday, and sticking to the trail there was NO water.
