Mountain Biking Sugarloaf Peak

***   Add a review
#334 of 422 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#10945 in the world

trail is a lot of rocky single track mixed with sandy patches and washes a network of game trails that have been ridden and converted to the hardcore bikers defiantly an intermediate trails net work and a early morning ride in early summer. trails range on the shorter side if you cut back on the canal or power line road however can go on for miles if you jump around on them. plan on drinking lots of water on the trails as its dry and hot in this part of the state. best time to ride is the winter months in the early morning or week after rain as everything will be in bloom.

    This is a great place to pedal on trails that are mostly cross-country type trails. Wild looking moonscape type stuff. No dirt here, just rocks. No jumps or drops either. I didn't quite understand the blue and black diamond ratings. I would highly recommend using a GPS type app to get around if you don't know the trail system. There are simply just too many forks to know where you were going without one.

    Nice tech trails. Park your car on the east side of the canal, next to the landfill. Those who created the trails dis some work! A lot of variety among the trails, sharp turns, nice decents some rock and gravel like climbing. The views on the east side hilltops are magnificent. You can be distracted easily :). As said before, bring enough water and be cautious! I would recommend not to drive alone. Reception (T-Mobile) is weak on certain parts but ok on the hilltops in case of emergency.
    Besides that it's an awesome trail system for intermediate and advance riders. For beginners I would recommend the west and north west side to collect some confidence in riding skills.

    Some fun trails, wide open and fun to open up the throttle with only a few little technical sections, but the lack of signage can make them difficult to follow. One of the trails passes back and forth across a river bed, and it can get pretty tricky to find the trail sometimes.

    Barren, moon like landscape with a good set of loops that you have to explore to discover, as there is no signage and trail markers. Nothing too difficult, but plenty of loose rocks and sand. Nice ridge line riding into and out of washes that keep things entertaining. If you're in Yuma, it is worth your time to ride.

    This trailhead description is wrong. The road to turn on is 7E although the gas stations are there (one is a Chevron now, not Shell). Head to the landfill and park anywhere there.

    My brother and I rode this in 2013 and it was a blast. Great network of trails and nothing too difficult. Heading out again tomorrow to do this area as well as Martinez Lake. Don't believe the reviews--Yuma is great.
