Review: Decent entry to the Arizona trail, I parked at the Kentucky Camp parking lot and rode south. I stayed on the trail for approximately 3 miles then took a fire road back to road 163 making a 7.3 mile loop.

Review: Rode this trail in late September. The usually visible Az trail was almost completely obscured by 3- 4 foot grasses and flowers. ( a full summer of monsoon rains was the culprit ). Was pretty hard to ride very fast, but the late summer wildflowers everywhere still made it a very enjoyable ride.

Review: great trail...there is actually two routes you can take. I stayed north at the Y and looped back arround. Its a pretty fast singletrack, the trail is also pretty decently makred.

Review: If starting in Fish Canyon near Kentucky Camp there will be climbing and descending the 4 miles to Gardner Canyon. If starting there and heading south, you'll cross a small canyon and gently climb to the 2 mile section of twisting, almost flat trail to the wilderness boundary. This is an IMBA Epic ride and Arizona Trail.
