Mountain Biking Honeybee Canyon Loop
#175 of 407 mountain bike trails in Arizona
Part of the Honeybee Canyon/Rail X Ranch system of trails. Great beginner to intermediate trail. 5.4 total miles with approximately 4 miles of rolling singletrack through beautiful desert and rocky foothills of the Tortolita Mountains. Many miles of single and doubletrack trails offshoot from this loop.
From the trailhead take the powerline road north approximately .7 miles to the cattle gate. Once though the gate the entrance to the singletrack trail is on the right 100 yards ahead. After another mile or so the singletrack crosses the powerline road. In another mile you will come to a four way junction of singletrack and jeep trails. Stay on the singletrack to your left. After a few more miles the singletrack trail will meet back up with the powerline road once again. Turn right to head back to the gate or left to take the singletrack you started on back to the gate.

Take Rancho Visatoso Blvd approximately 2.6 miles west from Oracle Rd. Trailhead is located on Quiet Rain Dr just north of Rancho Vistoso Blvd. Parking is available at the shopping center located at Rancho Vistoso Blvd/Sun City Blvd or at the Honeybee Hiking Trail parking lot further west on Ranch Vistoso Blvd.
Do not use the trailhead described here--it is closed and under dispute. And do NOT park on the Methodist Church road in Catalina. Park across Oracle Road at the Bashas parking lot, at the old juvenile justice parking lot north of the wildlife bridge, or access the trails from Edwin RoadThank |
Great beginner trail. Mostly flat, flowing trail. Some loose sand and the flora will penalize a rider that leaves the trail.Thank |
