Mountain Biking Horton Creek trail #285
#216 of 404 mountain bike trails in Arizona
A 4 mile climb to the Horton Creek spring and intersection with Highline trail where you can connect to 50 miles of additional single track if desired. I turned around at the spring and rode back down. Good trail for dogs but I cannot condone this. My well-behaved Lab loved it as she could get wet all along the trail. Surface can be loose and rocky making some short sections challenging. Heavy hiker traffic on weekends.
