    New question here. Whats by Awatukee and San Tan Heights?

    I live in vegas but my in-laws live in awatukee (48th and elliot) and my sis lives in san tan heights. This summer we will be visiting for a few weeks and I wanted to get some riding in. I wanted to get more info on any trails in those two areas. Pics are very much welcome

    That's pretty much at the base of South Mountain. I don't think you will have ANY problem finding somewhere to ride.

    Santan regional is sandy and there are a lot of snakes in the summer. I only ride there in the colder months to avoid the rattlers (and bring big tires for the sand).

    Hi,

    I live on Elliott and 48th.

    In 2 mins you can be on the Desert Classic trail which leads to miles of trails of varying skill diffuclty and fun.

    Check out the beginners thread and if you are an XC rider the Classic gets a bad rap but it is a great fast XC trail with some good ups and downs and then Javelina and East Loops rock for tighter trails and some climbing and then for the big boys a great loop is too ride East Loop, Javelina up Mormon across National down Telegraph and back on the Classic. About 22 miles and a good body pounding.

    I would be more than happy to show you around as well as probably many people that live in this area who post on here and ride on SOMO a lot!!

    Yeah, san tan regional at Wheelwagon dr. and Hunt Hwy. (further west) is hella rocky and slow. Further east at Hunt and Thompson is easier than Desert classic so really boring. I only go there when I'm too lazy to drive to good trails.
