This trail is fairly easy except for the first climb. Take a look at the trailhead for the route you would like to take. The trail changes in several directions and make sure you watch for no bikes sign. A lot of this open space is closed to bikers. Nevertheless, ride up to the first intersection over the canal bridge and take a left. This will head east for a bit and then you will start you descent with will u-turn it way back heading west. Follow this trail all the way until it ends at HWY 93. Look over the road to the southwest; there you will see a trail that leads down into Eldorado Canyon. Take this 4x4 road until it ends. At this point it is up to the rider if you would like to head back or make the route into a loop by heading north and then taking paved roads back to the trailhead. Explore around the entire open space. On ascent, you can actually take a jeep road which will take you all the way back to Superior. However, if you do not know the area, stick to an out and back format for your ride. This ride is great for a recovery ride or great for beginners looking to get comfortable on there bike.
