    What's your favourate trail in AZ?

    We want to ride the very best trails in Arizona for two weeks in May. So thought we should ask the locals. What's your pick of the most hootin fun and flowing trails in the state? We'd ideally like to ride at two or three locations. Cheers.

    Looking through the link Marty posted, it seems the best trails are in Sedona, Flag, Phoenix and Tucson. At the risk of generating serious interstate rivalry, how do these trails rate against those in Gallup and Durango.

    If you were to choose two locations out of these six, what would they be??

    Flagstaff is more like Durango than anything else you posted. I'd definitely hit that up. It's going to be getting hot in may, so maybe Sedona or Prescott, but otherwise, I'd personally avoid Phoenix. You could be looking at 100s easy.

    What time of year? Personally, my favorite trails in AZ are in Flag. But they are different than what you will find in Phoenix. Flag trails are probably more comparable to Gallup or Durango (although full disclosure, I've never ridden in either). Phoenix and Tucson, and to some extent Sedona, are much more rocky and loose than some of the alpine trails like those in Flag.

    Personally, if you're coming specifically to ride, I'd start in either Tucson (or Flag), and work your way north (or south). Flagstaff is the northern most city you've listed, and it's only about an hour north of Sedona (and Prescott), two hours north of Phoenix, and about 4 hours north of Tucson. Could easily ride a couple days in each.

    Well, If you're coming to Flag, Its basically required that you ride some of the primo stuff on Mt. Elden. Exactly what you want to ride is gonna depend on how your lungs hold up and just how aggressive or technical you want your ride to be... Specifics are gonna require more input data

    ideally, want to ride fast, flowing intermediate/advanced singletrack ... nicely bermed, a few rythm sections, small drops & jumps. Happy to spend an hour grinding uphill if I get a cool descent.

    Got 2 recommendations for you then...

    Ride 1: Up Schultz Creek and Little Gnarly for some good climbing, down Jedi to get your advanced portion, back up a little farther on Secret and finish down Upper Moto (Tech) and Super Moto (super fast and flowing).

    ~1000' vetical, takes me 2.5-3 hours

    Ride 2: Up Rocky Ridge for some fun climbing, then grind up Elden Lookout rd. to the summit for a fantastic view. From there you can barrel down Sunset for an insanely fun descent, with an optional detour down Little Bear. From there its another fast, flowy ride down Schultz Creek.

    ~2000' vertical, takes me 4 hours

    Disclaimer: Dunno where your coming from (Judging from the way you spelled favorite, not around here ) but Flag is at 7000' and the air can get a bit thin at times.

    I'm sure other people will chime in too, there's tons of great stuff up there and everyone has their own favorite route. Probably want to get a map once you get to town from one of the bike shops, or you could try to find the one that been floating around here (just don't mention the trail names on it to anyone )

    Thanks for those recommends. And yes - I am from 'not around here' (although my previous spelling of favourite is not even acceptable here! - New Zealand). Cheers.

    Sounds like you would love to try South Mountain, National trail. You can even drive to the top so you can descend first then climb back up, or shuttle.
    Fate favors the prepared.

    Better to climb it first that way to know what you're getting into on the DH

    Monolith Gardens in the Cerbat Hills, has a good trail system. Rarely see any one else riding when it's over 100 degrees in the summer. Or hiking either, bring lots of water.

    Mt. Elden, in my biased opinion, is a must in the summer months. All the grinds up are worth it and will leave you wanting more time to spend on the trails up in Flag. The rides that BoKnows posted up are great and I am especially fond of his #2 ride (great views at the top and Sunset/Cat Walk to Little Bear are hard to beat). Sedona would be my second choice for riding but might want to start early in the morning. I'll post up pics if I can find them.
