Mountain Biking Tonto Pass

*****   Add a review
#124 of 416 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#4,226 in the world

Trail starts out as Pemberton loop - counterclockwise. Ride approximately 5.25
miles (430ft climb over this distance). No real technical areas on the way up,
some sand and small berms. Turn right at the sign for Tonto Pass, this is a
hard right turn leading to the more fun Tonto Pass area, downhill from here all
the way back to Pemberton.
