    I would give it another day but maybe someone went there today to report. Saw a ride on strava someone rode it in the middle of the storm Friday, while 50% of Gold Canyon is fine wet there is the other 50% thats soft. It could be totally fine by now though. Goodluck either way

    Not true TS, you know this!! I would not recommend the Gold Canyon trails after a heavy rain event. Some of the trails closer to the Wilderness boundary have more rock and are better suited to ride out the storm so-to-speak, but the trails lower on the flank get super soft and need a day or two to dry out. I'm sure the area was great by Sunday afternoon...

    Gold Canyon: After the Deluge

    Just rode Gold Canyon today with my wife as part of a weekend visit to Phoenix. It's amazing right now. Trails were so much fun.
