Trail Description
About this trail
There are many miles of two-way single-track trails in the park at several levels of difficulty. The Pass Mountain Trail should challenge intermediate to advanced riders. The Cat Peaks Trail isn't that tough but it has a nice little climb and intermediate riders should have fun with the moderate technical features. For me the Cat Peaks Pass trail isn't really ride-able for its entire length although an advanced or expert rider may find it possible or even fun. Most of the rest of the trails are okay for beginners for most of their length. If you are unsure then just walk your bike through the washes. This system gets extremely hot in the summer. During this season you should consider riding in the early morning hours or in the late afternoon. Be sure to bring lots of water on your rides. A first aid kit is a good idea too, collisions with a cactus can hurt a lot. For your first visit it is a good idea to enter the park from the Ellsworth entrance. The day use fee is $6 per car but you get a paper map and can spend hours exploring the park on a mountain bike on your first visit. There are also seven access points located around the perimeter of the park. Learn more about these by checking out the individual rides listed here.

Review: Rode it clockwise. Lots of climbing to start and it's not technical on the climb so kind of boring in my opinion. Once you get to the top, the last 1/4 of the ride is really interesting. Some cool singletrack but also some sections/climbs with tons of loose rocks which aren't all that fun. The DH portion (last 1/4) has some great challenges which I enjoyed. A few exposure spots and a few really steep spots. Mostly black diamond on the DH but a few spots could be double black. Walk it if you need to but everything is rideable too. Also has sections with a lot of loose rocks which are just annoying. Worth checking out but not my favorite. Feels like a hiking trail that you're mtbing (and there's lots of hikers too!)

Review: Excluding Pass Mountain, there is pretty much no gnar here, but there is a ton of flow. It's a great place for beginners, but more experienced riders can pedal it hard and have a lot of fun too. Don't miss Cats Peak Pass. That's a very short piece of trail that is technical and a lot of fun. Do it both ways. Stay away from Crimson Wash, Amigos Wash and Nighthawk Wash trails. They have deeper sand. There are nice views throughout the system, especially of the Superstitions and of Pass Mountain (going CCW up Cats Peak trail. You can ride Pass Mountain in a couple of hours easily, and you can ride all the other trails in a couple hours. All the trails are well signed. Here's a good map of all the trails. http://www.maricopacountyparks.net/assets/1/6/usery-8x144.pdf

Review: I road the flat singletrack at the southern end of the park. My route was:
Blevins--Meridian--County Line--Ruidoso--Spilway--Blevins--Moon Rock--Levee--Noso
Overall an enjoyable and not too taxing ride. My Garmin registered 9.5 miles and 400ft of elevation gain. An easy ride with decent singletrack, good for beginners.

Review: Well marked trails with hard packed gritty surface. Cat's Peak was my most technical and Cat's Peak Pass. I had to do a couple of times to get the right line and speed. Blevins, County line, Meridian all fun, twisty and fast. Have to watch out for Cactus drop or be prepared for flats!!

Review: I am posting this review to point out a possible hazard. Recently my car was broken into while parked along one of the trail access gates on the southern edge of the park on McClintock Road. This is a pretty isolated area and car burglary is on the rise in this area. It is safer to pay the fee to enter the park or to park on Meridian Road which is busier.
