    Fire if youre going anytime during the next month or two plan on Feet In Pedals at LEAST by 5am and out by 10-11ish. And one 3L camelbak isnt enough if youre planning on doing anything over 10 miles out there. Let me know if you go.. Ill go with you!

    Nice looks like a good trail. I just started mtb this year and have ridden a ton since March, mostly White Tanks. Went to McDowell competitive tracks once and loved them. Yesterday did 15miles at estrella and hated most everything about those comp trails lol. I would love some better direction on how to get to this trail on the video as I am from the west side (Surprise), know little about the east valley and I am off this next week (took a week off to ride different trails around the valley).

    Tried it out yesterday. There are a TON of challenging sandy spots. Most of it, from what I rode. Didn't get to the roller coaster trail. Being pretty new myself, I found most of the trails a challenge. But, I also feel that they improved my skills, and gave me a great workout. Take lots of water, the trail system is big.

    No it's a lot of abrupt ups and downs. If you maintain your momentum, the fun parts involve almost no pedaling.
