    46th St Trailhead, Up National, Down Geronimo!

    Sorry for the late post, but I got to ride today! I am going to head out to Pima Canyon and head up national for a drop down Geronimo. I am starting at 2:30 (Sunday, Feb 15). Post up if you want to join.

    When I get to the bottom, I will just head home as I live down 20th st, but it is a real easy canal ride back to 46th St if you want to park there.

    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.

    That was my planned route today but I'm not sure I really came down Geronimo. After I got to BV I headed down a trail that was directly in front of the bench on the north (maybe NW) side of BV. I ended up at the Boy Scout camp -19th street and ?. I started to head east on the road and after about 200 - 300 yards I came across a sign to Geronimo trailhead. While the trail I came down was a blast (and will definitely do it again) it was chunkier and had many more very tight switchbacks than I though Geronimo had. Does it sound like I hit Geronimo or did I ride another trail.

    You rode Geronimo to Scout Camp, which is the general bike route taken. The real Geronimo splits off just before the climb in the middle of the trail you came down and is not usually ridden and is much gnarlier than the lower half of Scout Camp.

    They are tricky and don't get easier as time goes on, in some cases worse as they erode.

    The 3rd switchback from the top is pretty F'd up right now. The rocks that make up the water bar in it moved during the rains last week and is loose if you ride over it. I just noticed it this weekend, but next time I get out there I will try to re-secure it.

    Where does this other trail end up? Is it a good ride in your book?

    I like it.
    Switchbacks are fun.
    They need to be tricky!
    Having the rocks move under you sure wakes you up...

    I did not notice this yesterday. I guess that is a good thing? Maybe someone fixed it.
