Amazing trail! Havn't ridden such a singletrack in a long time. I rode from TH at Exit 242 to the TH at Exit 236. Wish I had a map, so I could make some kind of loop there. Lots of rocks, switchbacks, 2 river (Aqua Fria River) crossing and spectacular views. Even now it was hot and I ran out of water after 15 miles (had 3L bladder filled). Could use water filter if i had it with me. This trail deffinatelly not for beginners. Climbs are technical in spots and steep, but still rideable.
Northern part of my ride is smoother and many bike tracks visible. Southern part is much rougher due to more rocks and equestrian use.
Signs are in some spots. Still I'd like to see a map at least on major intersections.
It's the best trail I rode in Arizona so far and I want to come back and ride more here and on similar trails.
Similar to Sedona, but more workout and less people
