Review: I have to say first off that I didn't get very far on this trail. My husband is a newbie with very little lung capacity and it nearly killed him. I'm used to riding lots of elevation gain in So Cal, so I liked it. It's not for a beginner that isn't used to climbing. He went 1.5 miles and turned around. I wanted to get in at least 2, so that's as far as I got, but there were nice views, and I took some good pics. I felt very comfortable on the trail; some loose rocks, but no big deal.

Review: Trail 62 itself is mostly loose with ok sections of singletrack. Instead of turning around at the top of the watershed 299 trail, continue up Spruce Mtn RD and jump on Smith Ravine 297 trail. Might as well reward yourself with sick singletrack rather than loose moto'd out baby heads...

Review: I recommend iron lungs and a full suspension bike. Certain parts of the trail are almost impassable. Lots of logs on the trail, killing your uphill momentum.

Review: Pretty good singletrack on #62, a little rubble here and there, full suspension recomended. Nice views of Prescott and Prescott Valley.

Similar Trail: #305, #297

Review: best done going west-east(down). Connect with the newly constructed 4. 8 mile Tr. 62 climb from Senator Hwy and descend the fun/techy/rocky 62 east side.
