    Flagstaff Trail recomendations

    I will be camping for 1 night on the 29th in Flag, plan on riginf that afternoon and Sunday morning. Looking for some advice on where to ride. I will be riding with a group fo 4, not looking for total cross crountry trails, but also not 100% GNAR. Looking for trails with a bit of everything, about 2 hour ride each time.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Shuttle/climb Mt. Elden and find a preferable route down.
    Look for names like Wasabi or organ donor... the gnarlier it sounds the gnarlier it gets.

    The DH trails on Elden are totally blown out right now, not even fun on a DH bike. I recommend the AZT, Shultz, Secret, Super Moto....have fun.

    Shuttle up to Snowbowl and ride the Aspen Loop trail right out of the lot to the AZ trail, ride down the sweet 5 miles or so of high speed descending over to Lower Moto to Easter Island and back to Shultz where you want to leave your other car/shuttle retrieve vehicle. Go get your car up at the bowl, enjoy a beer or two then go for shuttle assisted ride #2. This time shuttle from the Y to the top of Elden. Sunset trail is fun as hell, ride it all the way down to the connector out of the Shultz Tank/pass lot that puts you on Lower Gnarly, descend that section back to Shultz and your car.

    This will be a big day of mostly descending, some good climbs, and a little cruisey xc stuff too.

    Had a great time riding in Flagstaff, you guy's have some nice trails. On Saturday we rode rocky ridge to lower brookbank to little gnarley then did the loop trail then down schultz. On Sunday we did the same trails in the opposite direction, this was the preferred route!
