    Name This Trail (Scottsdale)

    I just moved to north Scottsdale from San Diego and was lucky enough to move to a neighborhood with trails a plenty right outside the front door.
    Curious if anyone knows the name of this trail, its off Pima and legend trail.
    Hereís a vid:

    Itís also got a sweet roadside jump!

    cool video, not sure exactly where you were, but the main area is called "Pima & Dynamtine" Coming in off Legend Trail would put you in the northern area of the trails, which I am not 100 % dialed in on.

    I did not see powerlines or any of the mountains I normally use and landmarks. Fun riding out there! Hope you went back for the camera after the last jump!

    Welcome to AZ!

    More like Dare a Sarah or Girls route. Which part of legend trails did you move to? i use to live in the little squalor huts by the golf course.

    The better trails are on the eastern side of the ridgeline near 136th. I like trail #24 the best in both directions.

    Those sections right by Legacy aren't part of P&D. They are just little "back road" trails that feed into P&D. Use to live off Pima and Westland (west side of Pima) and rode there a bit. You'll know when you hit the actual P&D trails because they actually start to be marked. They are all numbered trails, but the map you got from singletrack will have the names.
    Keep pedalin'. You can catch your breath on the downhill!

    I haven't ridden out there in a while. I'm not sure of the names of the trails but, they are fun to ride. The vid. brought me down memory lane. Have to take another rip out there!
    Thanks ISW? for the vid.

    Hey Neighbor,
    I just moved here myself from Anthem and I live on Whitewing Dr. I ride a Gary Fisher HiFi and have also checked out those trails about two or three times. There are 2 more trailheads off of Legend Trail that connect to that one you rode. We should show each other around. I ride alot afterwork and usually do the McDowells on the weekends but know quite a few trails around where we live in this area. Its great up here because not alot of people make the drive up here or don't know about them. Anyway PM me if you wanna ride sometime.

    According to the trail map I started out on 23 (west express)
    To 17 to 15 (a majority of the video is on 15 at the base of cone mountain/ the most technical stuff) then to 16 (dare a Sarah) then back home on west express.
    You guys are right on just by looking at the landscape, awesome!
    I never read the sign as I enter the area. Is there a permit I need to ride there?
    If so; where do I get one and is it ever checked?
    Thanks again guys.

    Post something up when you plan a night (or day time) ride. I am 10 minutes away and have a renewed interest in night riding!
