    So I may be spoiled riding mostly bike parks in New England and Virginia/ West Virginia. That being said there isn't much to this place. The lift is quick, taking 15 minutes to bring you to 10,700 feet of elevation. But from there its mostly the fire/ access rode to the bottom. There are a few short trails connecting the road but it isn't marked at all. I couldn't find a trail map at the park and I don't think it would have helped given the lack of marking. I noticed some spray paint on trees but it was facing uphill and I wasn't sure if it was for the trails or the ski season. There is a lot of potential but without a lot of work I probably won't be back.

    Trails barely groomed. Mostly down hill on a gravel road or runoff area for water. Difficult to descend with control. I did it once and dos not go back up for seconds.

    Trails were barely maintained. Mostly service road and drainage washes as you barrel down the mountain.

    The only lift-accessed terrain in AZ. The trails are ok, it's not built or groomed like a "real" bike park though.

    This is an awesome trail for arizona riders to get out of the summer heat. Ride the lift to the top of the mountain and pick your favorite trail down. At the bottom, jump back on the lift and do it again..again..again. Check out the videos
