Description
Located at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, the Fort Valley Trail System was designed primarily for connecting popular mountain biking trails. This system is a multi-use trail to be used by bicycles, hikers, horses and motorcycles. Several sections of the trail were designed by a local biking organization to provide a more challenging ride for the more experienced mountain bike rider. The trail consists of loops that link with the Schultz Creek, Dry Lake Hill and Mt. Elden trail system.

Fort Valley trail is within the Chimney Springs area, just north of Flagstaff. The area has a gradual sloping terrain that consists of several shallow canyons and sweeping views of the San Francisco Peaks. Ponderosa Pine and Gambel Oak trees are the primary type of vegetation with New Mexico Locust and an occasional Hedgehog Cactus.

Review: This is a rocking trail system that connects to a bunch of other excellent trails in the area. Since it is shared with motor, it features some of the standard negatives such as more erosion and multiple lines in spots... but if features some of the benefits of moto traffic too, such as tons of banked turns and rock shredding! My entire experience riding here was just awesome--the rocks were fun, the dirt was tacky and drifted reliably when things got loose. The climbs were all very gradual, and the descents, while not steep, were wide-open and fast! So much fun... I highly recommend it!

Review: Large network of trails surround this system, many higher on the San Francisco Peaks, Arizona's tallest and most beautiful mountain, a volcano. Expect tough climbs to access higher trails, no water anywhere so carry plenty. Jedi, Lots of trails and challenges. The coolest riding in Arizona, high on the mountain.

Similar Trail: Little Bear Elden, Schultz, Supermoto, Brookbank, Weatherford. All part of this network, much more!

Review: This trail system has great variety with connections to other Mt. Elden trails (Schultz Cr., Oldham, etc.). Climb up and hit Secret Tr. for a gnarly rock session.
