I live on the outskirts of Phoenix, AZ (Queen Creek, specifically) and have been wanting to put together a multi-day loop from my front door. Luckily we have an abundance of great trails all around the Valley of the Sun. It was pretty easy to connect the trail networks with only a little bit of pavement. This particular loop was going to be 3 days & 215 miles, but in the end I cut it short doing 2 days & 117. Still an awesome ride. Full write-up with pics here:
