    Question for SoMo riders

    Hey guys quick question. I ride Mormon-National quite often. I few weeks ago I noticed a trail that splits off of Mormon just after heart attack hill and descends the North side of the mountain. I ends at a cul-de-sac at 32nd street. Do any of you know this trail. What is it like? Do you just ride the canal path back to pima canyon parking lot? Is it worth trying?

    Thanks!

    It's what they call 32nd st. or more famously known as "Slip and Slide" for obvious reasons. It's loose and chunky. Drops you down to the valley floor real quick. You can ride the canal back to javelina for a nice loop. Ride don't slide

    Do you think it is worth riding or is it so loose it isn't really fun?

    Soooooo much fun on a bigger bike. After the rains it really got tore up bad, but still rideable. Fun banked switch backs and high speed sections. You'll never know unless you try!

    That's true. I don't have a huge big (2007 enduro) but big enough I think. I'll give it a try this week.

    i rode it last wed and it was fun. a little rougher than normal - a little more rocky and watch for really deep ruts. your enduro should be fine. I use my pivot firebird out there.

    Which usually means its time to wait and rebuild, rather than just keep riding it...

    That guy's a d0uche... He doesn't have any skill on a bike, all he does is skid down the trails and ruin them.

    He may be a ******, and he may skid, BUT he is uncircumsized, and that makes up for it all.

    Does this look right?

    I know I have ridden 32nd and didn't really like it. I didn't like the loose steepness of it. Is there another trail the breaks of of Mormon that I don't have on there?

    So you are saying that you don't have the cajone's to enjoy a loose, steep trail? That is pretty much the reason why it is being used...

    32nd is SICK!! The best way to ride that trail is go as fast as you can then grab a fistful of rear brake and skid down the entire thing.

    Rode n HAB'd up 24th a couple times before trying to descend it. Thought it would be way over my head and a lot of walking down but I was very pleasantly surprised how fun it was. Other than skipping a couple short segs riding down it was all good...and by good I mean awesome! 32nd looks interesting.

    With Wetscreams for added traction.

    You do realize 32nd shouldn't be talked about online as its not a legal somo trail and it needs no further advertsing than its already got.

    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    I am pretty sure that the vast majority of Jewish men are circumcised. If anything, he is a skidding, trail destroying Gentile.
    Getting a dropper post is like getting a bidet. I didn't know I needed one until I get one and boy, does my ass thank me.

    Oh? I did not know it was illegal to build stuff of Nat. Forest Land.
    I thought, since it was public, anyone could do anything they wanted to do.
    Kids should be able to do stuff.

    X2. I'm pretty sure you can ride dirt bikes on SoMo Trails as well. People just don't do it, but you can

    I think all those cute little ramps and jumps and general obstacles that pop up everywhere generally make the trail more difficult and thus slower. They really impede my flow. But, now that I know they are illegal, I will destroy them so I can get my flow back on!

    Really you guys? Someone posts, a few legit answers, and then the "locals" come in a spew the same inside joke lameness all over this forum.

    You hate this and skid that and draw penis' all over each other, fine but on EVERY other post. Seriously get a life and ride a bike.

    So I am reading the posts, wondering why my interest in learning about new trails on SoMo is turning ugly and then I read mack10's reply and LITERALLY fell out of my chair laughing!! You nailed it. I give you props for an entire week. Use it wisely! I will keep my post count under 2000 because there is some sort of correlation with that number and going whack.
