Mountain Biking Denton Trail #69
#332 of 401 mountain bike trails in Arizona
From FR 421, the trail climbs steadily up the east face of the mountain. Some sections are quite steep. The trail eventually tops out at 5,760 feet elevation and then descends to Big Pine Flat for the last ¼ mile.
Nice vistas of Tonto Basin. At the upper elevations, the trail passes through a stand of Ponderosa pine. Portions of the trail are rough and should be traveled with caution. Difficulty level: most difficult. source: fs.usda.gov
