All singletrack. 19 miles of trails with 6 loops. This trail is all about leaning into curves as you are mostly cornering around wavy trails thru the desert. This trail is espically beautiful in late winter and early spring after good winter rains when wildflowers abound. Created by mountain bikers for mountain bikers. Surrounding area is being developed for housing but local biking community have saved this fun gem thru activism.
Review: I live minutes from this trail system and ride it every chance i get. Very fun cross country mountain biking. Main trail has some unique features including a half pipe. The system features many different trails and in total i believe its up to 26 miles in length if you ride all the trails.
Review: I can't complain, because this trail is exactly what it's described as, and it's easy to get to. Here's what you get: pedal, pedal, pedal, turn, pedal, pedal up, fast down, turn, turn, pedal, etc....
Review: Like a MTB roller coaster! The southern end, Bunny Trail and Snake Bite, are so fun to push your speed to the max, it is the same thrill as riding an old wooden roller coaster. There are many more technical trails on the north end. The greatest feature is convenience and even though your are right in the middle of the city, the moment you start trail it seems like total wilderness.
Review: For a beginner-friendly trail with almost no elevation change, Fantasy Island is astonishingly fun. This trail consistenlty has some of the best cross-country flow I've ever seen. I could see riding this one many times before tiring of it.
Review: This track is best the day after a light rain. Very flat, some small jumps, great for cruising around and chasing cows. You can ride .5 miles to 14 miles depending on how many of the same trails you want to cross. Its a cool place.
Review: Rode the southern portion of this network yesterday after rain had gone through the area. Because of the moisture the trail surface was in peak condition; beautiful hardpack singletrack. Rode the bunny loop, snake dance, fire loop and rez loop. None of these were technical, just smooth flowing singletrack. Looking forward to getting to the north side later this week as I understand those trails offer more of a challenge. This is a beginner system for sure, but nub's please be careful out here. There's plenty of cactus to correct the slightest mistake.
If you have ridden Phil's World in Cortez, CO and you loved it, then you will love Fantasy Island. If you didn't like Phil's World, then this isn't the place for you.
