    2 Days, 1 Night, Where Would You Ride?

    So I have an infrequent opportunity to camp and ride next week, so I'm trying to decide where. If you could leave Phoenix, drive, ride, camp overnight and drive back the next morning, where would you go? I've always gone to the Mogollon to ride when I've done these things, but wouldn't mind trying somewhere new this time. Any suggestions and beta are welcome!
    Peace!

    Flagstaff. Camp either near the bottom of Schultz Pass Road or for better camping and a chance for a campfire ( depending on restrictions) drive several miles up the road and find a spot....ride trails right from campsite.

    The beauty of this overnighter is you get the camping experience you want, the bike riding you want and you are just minutes from town if you want to go grab a pizza. Probably the best quick trip I can think of in the area.

    The white mountains and the Pinetop area (Los Burros) offer some great opportunities as well but it's a much further drive for such a short trip... Depending on what part of the valley you live in I suppose.

    Gotta go with Flag as well. Mount Lemmon is a pretty cool too for an over-nighter.

    I've camped on Schnebly a few times and ridden to Sedona, but didn't know there were trails to ride there, other than the ones I've done before. Is there camping on Schultz Pass on Elden?

    Yes there is camping up there. In fact I meant to say Schultz Pass Road in my original post. Not sure why I said that Schnebbly. I've corrected my post

    They put a ton of no campfire signs all along schultz pass road. I camped at cinder hills a few days ago which is super close and campfires are allowed. If your going to flag ride up elden lookout road and then come down sunset to schultz creek or moto. All awesome trails
