New Year’s 2nd Day – Desert Classic complete loop

With a peak bagging New Year’s Day hike (check out :next: http://hikearizona.com/photoset=28195 ) just completed, what to do for a follow-up on the 2nd day of the New Year?

While sorting through some Stewart Mountain photos Wednesday night prior to posting, a potential clue was displayed on the flat screen in the form of a promo documentary proclaiming Flagstaff as the true birthplace of mountain biking :next: http://www.azcentral.com/video/1188286448001 and https://www2.nau.edu/wordpress-mu/plaid/2011/09/“changing-gears-flagstaff-and-the-mountain-bike”/ Of course a sound bite from Cosmic Ray (check out :next: http://www.amazon.com/Fat-Tire-Tales-Tr ... 0966476980 and http://azdailysun.com/news/local/two-fo ... 2de79.html ) was included. This reminded me of my chance meeting with Cosmic Ray about 15 years ago and a little discussion we had about a little appreciated mountain bike trail called “Desert Classic” (check out :next: http://hikearizona.com/decoder=706 ).

Call it serendipity, but a complete loop of Desert Classic was definitely being suggested to me, so we made it happen (door step to Pima TH to Telegraph Pass TH via Desert Classic and back home again)…

Time = 2:26:29
Distance = 20.89 miles
AEG = 1232 ft
