I use Trailforks app to help me find starting points and bike routes and GPS maps to help me venture away from them once I have started moving. I started at Apache Wash trailhead but crossed the road to get back into more secluded paths and roads. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found!
The little roads have obviously been somewhat frequented by ATV's and such but not today. It was quiet and peaceful and full of color!
I took two separate connectors, the Cave Creek Dam connector and a north/south single track connector. I also included a loop around Cactus Wren, rode out on Cave Creek Dam Rd, spent time on Ocitillo and finished on the Paseo pathway.
It was a glorious day to ride!
