The Santa Clara River Reserve is the place to be if you're looking for intense mesa-top riding. Suicidal Tendencies, Barrel Roll, and Rim Runner all have pretty technical trail placed near some mean exposure. And beginners looking for an adrenaline rush can still get it on the easier Anasazi Trail (which also has some really cool petroglyphs). Another great thing about this trail system are the views. Because the trail gravitate towards big cliffs, every one is flush with beautiful views of the surrounding terrain. As a whole, the system is a great way to still get that backcountry feel without being too far away from civilization.
