Really nice call-out list for novice riders. I’d stress that Western Desert Classic (beyond 6mi from Pima) is solidly intermediate. Browns Ranch has a ton of Green to ride, including some of the newer trails in the southwestern part. That said, not well marked yet in that section and there are also many challenging blues…

500% gear range! 30x50 to climb anything. Rock solid shifting

For a mountain biker new to the Chicago area, north shore singletrack seems pretty nonexistent. So I was really pleased...
