Most will start at Summerhaven on Mt. Lemmon. From town take road that follows Sabino Creek upstream. Eventually leads to the bottom of Aspen Draw, most ride the road up and trail down. Trail starts just past the top of ski lift to the east, hard to spot and ends just below the base ski lift. From there it becomes follows Sabino Creek. Most will ride as a loop including the Meadow Trail to the west. Some will continue down the mountain for epic riding to Green Mountain Trail and much more.
The premire Tucson summer trail. Expect many tech festures, very tight and slopeing switchbacks and lots of shade. Even water crossing on one part of the trail. It gets a bit muddy but can also be avoided taking a doubletrack around it. For someone wanting to cool off from summer's heat, this trail is the best.Thank |
Extend this trail by riding the loop thru the meadow to the west.
