    Oracle, AZ singletrack?

    Going down to Oracle this weekend to visit the in-laws and wanted some singletrack to do while I'm down there. I have a 4x4 so heading up the back side of the Lemmon is not a problem but was looking for some recommendations on rides to do? Mainly xc stuff but i'm not scared of the fun stuff either as long as it's not to gnar (looking for fun the whole fam can do).

    AZ Trail runs right past Oracle. You can link it to the Cody Trail off of the Cody Loop Rd in Oracle. There is also a tough jeep road climb and some fun descending called the Pepper Sauce Loop.

    You migh consider a drive up to Aspen Draw and hit that and the Meadow Trail for some short loops. Don't be tempted to ride Oracle Ridge down to Oracle, that is a death march.

    You can check sdmb.org and sambabike.org to get some more info on the area and the rides and routes.

    there's also the 24HiTOP. Are we allowed to ride that area, or is it just open leading up to the event?

    Cody Trail/AZT to the State Park is one of the best trails in southern Arizona, ripping fast descents!

    50-year and 24HOP are both too hot right now...think high elevation.
