Mountain Biking Goldwater Lake (Trail 396)

****   Add a review
#70 of 416 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#2,177 in the world

You can ride this trail in either direction, and will start out climbing no matter which you choose. Known for its twisty singletrack, this trail traverses through the trees, is mostly shaded, and has views of Goldwater Lake. The descents are equally pleasing. You can connect it with Schoolhouse Gulch to make a loop.
