    Name that Trail

    I am visiting Arizona in a few weeks and have been looking for trails to ride. I found this video on youtube.com

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ww4MCbWM8iA

    Does anyone know the name of the trail? Any other information you could give me regarding the trail would be helpful, thanks.

    I'm guessing that's the XCish way to ride them. I've seen the DH videos of those same trails......

    I would call the AM more than XC. I only watched about 3 minutes of it. There was a lot of Nation trail on there. Very fun to ride. Start on the East side of the mountain at the Pima Canyon entrance going West on the trail till you want to turn around if you are doing National. Lots of people out there when the weather gets nicer.

    If you think having a preggers wife holds you back wait until the kid shows up. Dont ask me how I know.

    Thanks for the info. Do they have trail markers for each of the trails? If I am wanting to make a loop out of the National trail, which trails do you recommend taking? Would it be best to take the Mormon trail up? Is there a way to shuttle this trail, if so how would I do so?

    What are the PMP trails referred to above, and which trails do you recommend? I'll be riding a 4 inch XC bike. I enjoy technical trails with both uphill and downhill but would like to stay away from huge drops. Are there any shuttle trails you would recommend near the Phoenix area?

    I've tried to go through the stickies but still need a few bits of information. Thanks again for all your help.

    check out the wed. morning shuttle thread for info on shuttlin' these trails. If you're gonna be in town on a wed. get on the bus We mostly ride big bikes but we've shuttled with them all. XC rigs, AM, 29r hardtails, etc. Plus after your run you can cool down in the van with an otter pop!!!!

    As for shuttle trails, somo is the really the only one in town. But you can shuttle hawes and there's a bunch of trails out of town i.e. sixshooter, mingus, flagstaff. Hope this helps!
