    Flagstaff/Mt Elden trail hook up....

    Can anyone suggest where to start and what trails to hook up for an afternoon of riding. Looking to put together a fun loop that will last one afternoon hitting the best of the best in that area ie-little bear. Driving in and driving out at the end of the day

    Bottom of Schultz Creek. Up Creek to Little Gnarly. Up Little Gnarly to Upper Brookbank. Upper Brookbank to Sunset. Sunset to Little Bear. Little Bear to Lower Elden. Lower Elden to top of Schultz Creek. Schultz Creek back to your car. 4-5 hours of very nice Elden riding.

    You forgot the climb up the hobbit forest and organ doner! This is a must-do on my rides that follow the similer route.

    Anyway, there's a lot of ways to do the trails up there, and it just depends on your ability level and such.

    Thanks Paul for the useful info. Also, thanks for the useful book info dirdir, that was a great help:P Im well aware that there are books out there, was just looking for a local perspective. If you ever come to Vegas and want some local knowledge I can hook you up with a great bookstore

    You can't go wrong with the ride that Paul suggested. Make sure to hit Beaver Street Brewery at the end of the ride for some grub and beer. I hear that Bun Huggers is not the place to go after a ride.

    Well, back tonight from Pauls suggested trail hookup which was almost what I did a year or two ago. Had a great ride, temps were just right, and the scenery of course was awesome as usual. Looks like you guys could use a little rain to cut down on the dust which was pretty bad. I was coated with dirt by the end of the ride but grinning ear to ear As a side note bun huggers wasnt too bad after that ride. Of course I might have eaten cardboard at that point,

    No comment on Bun Huggers from me. I almost got Internet-lynched for my comments on the subject in another thread. Glad you had a good time. I gotta get me up there sometime soon.

    Just got back from Portland, OR. The wife is pushing to relocate there. So I got on mtbr OR discussion boards to check out the trails in town there. You'd think there would be a boatload, but I think we're pretty blessed here in PHX. Now if I can just lower the summertime temps here by about 20 degrees to get my wife to want to stay...

    If you're going to OR and have any flexibility, go to Bend, OR in the central part of the state. World-class rock climbing nearby, skiing, mountain climbing...and biking of all varieties.
    Ride more; post less...
