This is a multi-use trail with hikers and equestrians, but for the most part it is not well-traveled. Much of the trail is single-track and the west side of Granite Mountain has a fairly rocky trail system.

    Great short segment in the Scottsdale preserve. Moderately challenging, beautiful views. The whole park gets 10 stars out of 5

    Excellent trail, highly suggest riding counter clockwise around the Granite Mt Loop. Fair amount of flow on the downhill, makes for a fast and fun time!

    The reason for the 3 rating is the rocks on the west side of Granite Mountain. I ride a full suspension bike so they don't bother me too much, but a hardtail might be in for a rough ride
