Trail Description
About this trail
This is an easy network and immpossible to get completely lost. A few of the stretches you can take at high speeds, but the semi-large chunky rocks will slow you down. This is a ride I do in the middle of summer, mid day. It usually isn't too bad, unless it's really humid, which is rare. Even then we rode for over an hour. It's not for the beginners because of some of the climb, and it gets you winded if you're going fast enough.

Q: where is the best place to start this trail? -Guest

A: Q: The best place to start in my opinion is the parking lot off of galvin, however you can park down by marquee theater near the lake and the trails over next to the 202 are pretty fun

Review: Papago is good because it is close to downtown and makes for a quick ride after work. There are tons of trails here. Most of them are fairly loose over hard pack and you can washout easily if running too high of pressure in your tires. The hole in the rock and tomb make for great photo ops.

Review: I'd give this Trail a higher rating, but I'm pissed off that I got an $87.00 parking ticket for my car being in the lot after dusk. Total crock of shit. Go somewhere else.

Review: The Papago Trail area is a great area for the beginner and intermediate rider. There are a variety of trails that range from flat, sandy turns to loose climbs and quick descents. There are a few jumps that have ride-arounds.

Review: Good trails. Most are pretty easy, but you can leave some of the more well-groomed trails and find some tougher stuff. It's usually the place I bring beginners to let them find their sea legs. It's also a really convenient location, and there's usually plenty of parking.

Review: Good quality trail. Has a little taste of all different types of rides however it's short. I ran the outer loop 2.5 times. Excellent area and scenery.

Review: The trails are nice and easy. Ideal for beginners. You can optionally add some climbs up to the pyramid or hole in the rock.
