Nice switchback trail connecting AZ Trail to Sunset Trail atop Mt. Elden. Some technical spots, with a fair grade but it is mostly rideable uphill by most seasoned riders. Great downhill. Great scenery with wildlife opportunities.

    Part of an extensive trail system on Arizona's tallest, most beautiful and coolest mountain. A volcanic cone last eruption in the area was less than 1000 years ago. Many parts of the system are great, explore here for a few days.
    Bring plenty of water, there's none. The climb up to the top of the riding is tough but rewarding.

    Nice trail on Mt. Elden. I rode it on my way to Schultz Creek. Fast and flowing with some rockier sections to keep you awake. Fun trail.

    Super fun descent with rocky and fast top half and tight and turny bottom half. A must ride in Flagstaff, don't miss it.
