Mountain Biking Park Trail #66

*   Add a review
#233 of 422 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#6,638 in the world

From the Park Creek Trailhead, the trail crosses Park Creek and climbs gradually through lower Sonoran Desert and riparian vegetation for ½ mile. The trail then ascends steeply towards the crest of the divide, passing through chaparral, semi-desert grassland and juniper woodland. The final 1¼ mile follows fairly even contours until meeting the headwaters of Park Creek. It terminates at Edwards Park in a stand of large ponderosa pines.

Outstanding views of Tonto Basin and the Mazatzal and Sierra Ancha Mountains Trail terminates at Edwards Park, which is an open meadow with large trees, ideal for camping. Park Creek, at the upper end, runs near the trail and offers pools and waterfalls seasonally for the enjoyment of hikers. Travel by vehicles is very difficult due to rugged terrain. Difficulty level: more difficult. source: fs.usda.gov

    Clearly the person who added this trail did not ride it. Rocky and overgrown in places, it's also poorly marked and with all the cattle trails it's easy to get off the trail in the middle of the cat claws which are every where. Great views.
