Mountain Biking South Mountain Park / National Trail

*****   Add a review
#10 of 417 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#161 in the world

National trail can be acended or decended. Both require expert skills and fitness. You cannot and will not find a climb this technical, challenging and fun in AZ. It will kick your ass and youll love every turn of the peddle. You can ride this trail 365 but, beware of mid afternoon temps in the summer, "theres birds that will pick your bones clean."

Rider questions

Q: Ok, kinda of more a generalized question, can you ride E-bikes in most of these trails or are they National forests?

Q: What is the best mtb for this type of trail?
