Mountain Biking Cottonwood Trail #120

***   Add a review
#226 of 401 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#8,023 in the world

From the Frazier Trailhead, the trail meanders over low ridges and through drainages until it drops into Cottonwood Canyon. Then it goes up the canyon and junctions with FR 341 that serves as the trail. Turn left onto FR 341 and travel south for approximately 1.5 miles. The trail takes off from the road to the south and continues to follow Cottonwood Canyon. After approximately 3 miles, the trail reaches the southern terminus at FR 83.

Trail offers easy access to Sonoran Desert vegetation and cottonwood-willow riparian vegetation. The upper segment of this trail is part of the Arizona Trail. source: fs.usda.gov

    It wasn't technical but it was a tough uphill. Great views and fast decent but I wouldn't do it again.
