    Best trails in Flagstaff?

    Thinking of heading up to flag in a week or so. What trails should I hit up? Ive never been there going up from Prescott solo for the day. Riding
    full suspension 29er SS.
    Thanks Dan

    Fixgeardan,
    I would not suggest riding Flagstaff for you, as you clearly don't have the requisite Fizik 29'r specific saddle for the riding up there. I would stick with Prescott where it's acceptable to mix saddles and wheel sizes, willy-nilly.

    Sincerely,
    maad

    Maad is right. It's all 1x11 650B here now. Otherwise, don't bother.

    What kind of trails or ride are you in the mood for? long climbs followed by long downs?... elevation neutral? Techy or fast and flowy? Lots of options and hard to go wrong up here right now.

    Suctiongoat is right, it's hard to go wrong but there is quite a bit of variety. Have a look at the sticky.

    There's some good loop suggestions in this thread. Flagstaff Advice

    Forget Little Bear and Little Elden. Those are closed.

    Climbs are good ,downhill good,fast flowy good. Everytime I think about going riding somewhere else I remember just how good Prescott trails are. I just want to ride single track in trees all day. Easy to follow and find is a plus.

    One of my faves is to start at Schultz, go up to Chimney, take Chimney to Damper, take Damper back on Moto? to the Fort Valley Trailhead. Once you're at Fort Valley, take FR164B over to Snowbowl and take the connector to the AZT. Take the AZT back to the Sunset TH, and then drop back down on Schultz. Bout 17.5 miles all told, IIRC. Nice and flowy. The only real crappy part is FR164B.

    Azt ,Schultz sounds great. Im good for 30+ miles or so. Im looking at Friday Nov 8. How
    cold we talking and what are the chances of snow? I don't mind cold just hate wet. If someone could shoot me directions to the trailhead that would be great.

    If you are good for that kind of mileage, the ride Maad suggested is hard to beat if the weather conditions are good. Anything can happen up here this time of year.

    It could be in the high 60's, or mother nature could go full retard and drop major snow. Chances are though it will be relatively dry and cool but very rideable.

    I like arm and leg warmers this time of year as they are easy to take off and pack away nice and tight.

    I dug up my old rays book . I cant wait to come up and spend the day exploring. Is there
    a fee for parking at the schultz trailhead? Where would I find private reserve?

    it's just to the left of the big rock, up high, next to the cactus that has the flower on it.

    That map is getting hard to find. Dude's site got hacked or something. Anyway, Superfly is way more flowy and fun.

    I'd consider Sedona.
