    Brownlow Trail in Prescott

    Is this trail beginner appropriate? Her third time on the bike and I want it to be more successful than our last outing, where she fell over about 5 times on rocky moto, etc in Flag.

    IMO: a good beginner trail is Peavine. If she does OK there then the double track on Brownlow would be the next step up as long as you stay on the south side of Pioneer Parkway. Once she feels comfortable there then venture over towards Pioneer Parkway and do the north forty and Legacy Trails.

    Brownlow trail is absolutely a beginner trail. It's a wide path like Peavine. There are a few hills, depending on if you do the shorter loop or bigger loop. The bigger loop has some of these hills, the shorter one not so much. There are also a bunch of no-named singletracks on the South side of Pioneer Parkway, these are good short (1/4 mile or less usually) beginner singletracks too.
